COVID-19: An Inflection Point for Emerging Markets Consumer Technology
Tuesday, September 15th, 2020
11:00 am - 12:00 pm est

After March’s volatility and subsequent comeback, there are doubts as to how far the technology-led US rally can go.

Allocating to Emerging Markets Consumer Technology may provide meaningful diversification for US investors while maintaining many attractive attributes of FAANG-type companies that have driven technology’s outperformance in the US.

Join KraneShares investment professionals Anthony Sassine, CFA and Derek Yan as they explore:

  • What is Emerging Markets Consumer Technology and what are the key drivers of growth?
  • How have Consumer Technology companies and suppliers changed during COVID-19?
  • Why we believe the case for Emerging Markets is stronger than ever
  • Value vs. growth relative performance – is COVID-19 a tailwind for growth factors?
  • Introduction to the KraneShares EM Consumer Technology ETF (KEMQ).
