KraneShares to Hold Eight City China A-Share Inclusion Roadshow


Krane Funds Advisors, LLC the investment advisor to the KraneShares Bosera MSCI China A-Share ETF (NYSE: KBA) is proud to announce the “China A-Share Inclusion Roadshow” a series of educational events spanning eight U.S. cities from late April through May 2018. The Roadshow will educate institutions and financial advisors on the upcoming inclusion of Mainland listed Chinese securities (A-Shares) into MSCI’s Global Standard Indexes, commencing June 1st, 2018.

MSCI is the largest index provider1 to the $4.9 trillion global ETF industry2 with $1.6 trillion tracking the MSCI Emerging Markets Index alone2. Over the long-term A-shares are projected to comprise 17% of the MSCI Emerging Markets Index spanning multiple rebalances3. This could represent upward of $270 billion being reallocated to the newly included A-share securities2. Similar past rebalances have provided a strong catalyst for the performance of the inclusion markets.

At each event, KraneShares will be joined by investment professionals from MSCI, China International Capital Corporation (CICC), a leading Chinese investment banking firm, and Bosera Asset Management, one of the largest asset managers in Mainland China and subadvisor to KraneShares Bosera MSCI China A-Share ETF (NYSE: KBA).

“On June 1st, China, the second largest equity market globally4, will enter one of the largest indexes in the world for the first time. We have seen a lot of demand for education on how investors can positon their portfolios to potentially benefit from the inclusion of China A-shares” said Jonathan Krane, CEO of KraneShares. “We are proud to partner with MSCI, CICC and Bosera to bring the China A-Share Inclusion Roadshow to investors across the United States”.
