Recent regulations related to internet companies have led to volatility in China’s offshore listings and dominated headlines. At the same time, investors have been cheering China’s reforms in healthcare, 5G, AI, and clean technology. These reforms have the potential to impact China’s domestic economy positively. In addition, consumer-related sectors such as food and beverage and financial services continue to exhibit healthy growth. We believe investing directly into the A-share market provides access to the potential boons from the ongoing index inclusions and a favorable macroeconomic backdrop.
KraneShares recently partnered with UBS to launch the actively-managed Krane-UBS China A Shares mutual fund. UBS has one of the longest actively-managed track records in the China A Share market. The Krane-UBS China A fund marks the first time the flagship China A Share strategy is available to US investors in a mutual fund.
Join KraneShares and UBS as we explore China A-Shares: Resilience, Innovation and Regulatory Support.
The event will feature presentations from Denise Cheung, CFA (EM/Asia Pacific Equities Specialist at UBS) and Anthony Sassine, CFA (Senior Investment Strategist at KraneShares) followed by a moderated Q&A session.
