Webinar Replay – A Larger Piece of the Pie: Choosing the Right Mainland China Exposure
June 18th, 10 am-11 am

As the weight of Mainland China continues to increase within Emerging Markets and global indexes, it is important investors take a selective approach to their China exposure. MSCI takes a differentiated approach to China's A-Share market, creating indexes tailored for international investors to access Mainland China. One size does not necessarily fit all, as investors may see varying results from investing in different sectors. The healthcare industry in China, for example, has performed especially well in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic*, and we believe ongoing innovations will serve as a catalyst for long-term growth.

Please join us for a webinar that explores how to choose the right Mainland China exposure as its weight within indexes continues to rise. The event will feature a joint presentation by KraneShares Chief Investment Officer, Brendan Ahern, and Abhishek Gupta, Executive Director of Index Solutions Research from MSCI.


Key Topics:

  • Why now is a key time to invest in China A-Shares
  • China Index Comparison: MSCI China A vs CSI 300
  • Sector Spotlight: China Healthcare, A Bright Spot for 2020
  • MSCI rebalance and A-Share inclusion update
    *Past performance is no guarantee of future results
