With the recent loan prime rate cut and further reserve requirement ratio cuts on the horizon, China is entering a period of easing just as rates rise in the United States. As China equities appear attractive from a policy standpoint, mainland and international investors are increasingly on the same page regarding which subset of China A-shares they prefer.
Since October 2021, foreign investors can now hedge their A-shares exposures for the first time thanks to futures contracts launched by the Hong Kong Stock Exchange based on the MSCI China A 50 Connect Index. A disproportionate percentage of the $67 billion of net buying from foreign investors through the Stock Connect program in 20211 focused on the largest, most liquid stocks2, the same segment the MSCI China A 50 Connect Index tracks.
The index is just as popular with domestic Chinese investors. Since October, three ETFs launched in the mainland that track the MSCI China A 50 Connect Index have attracted over $4.5 billion assets under management.3
