Investment Strategy:

The KraneShares European Carbon Allowance Strategy ETF (KEUA) provides targeted exposure to the European Union Allowances (EUA) cap-and-trade carbon allowance program. KEUA is benchmarked to the IHS Markit Carbon EUA Index, which tracks the most traded EUA futures contracts. As a part of the KraneShares suite of carbon ETFs, KEUA provides a new vehicle for participating in the price of carbon and hedging risk while supporting responsible investing and impact investment goals.

KEUA Features:

  • The EUA cap-and-trade program is the world's oldest and most liquid carbon allowance market. It covers approximately 40% of the EUs total emissions covering 27 EU Member States plus Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway1.
  • The program targets reducing emissions by at least 55% of 1990 levels by 2030 and climate neutrality by 2050. The "Fit for 55" package released in 2021 set out an expansion and tightening of the program, including an increased cap reduction from 2.2% to 4.2% per year2.
  • EUA carbon allowances are among the fastest-growing, strongest performing, and diversifying asset classes. In 2021, EU carbon allowance futures have traded around $30 billion per month.3, 4
  • Can provide potential portfolio diversification due to the historically low correlation to traditional asset classes.1, 4

By pairing KEUA with other KraneShares carbon funds, investors can customize their allocation to the global carbon credit market:
