The Holding Foreign Companies Accountable Act (HFCAA) put the status of US-listed Chinese companies in limbo. While, according to the law, there is a three-year timeline before any delisting would occur, many companies are pursuing secondary listings in Hong Kong. Beyond increased regulatory clarity, there may be other benefits to listing closer to home.
Through listing in Hong Kong, Chinese companies gain increased access to local investors who are more familiar with the companies’ services. They may also be eligible for inclusion in the Southbound Connect program allowing mainland investors to buy their stock for the first time. There are many apparent advantages to listing in Hong Kong, but which companies qualify? What does this mean for investors holding these stocks in the US? And how does conversion work?
In this Q&A, KWEB portfolio manager James Maund will walk investors through the technical conversion process and answer your questions. KraneShares CIO, Brendan Ahern, and Head of International Dr. Xiaolin Chen will also take your questions on China’s internet sector and the broader China equity market.
