China A Shares – Opportunities and Risks


November 22, 2017


The launch of Shenzhen-Hong Kong Connect and Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect provides for the easier flow of investment dollars into domestically listed Chinese stocks.

In response to this and other factors, MSCI has announced the upcoming inclusion of China A shares in its emerging markets index. Asset managers will most certainly follow suit.

This will allow foreign investors to easily access rapidly growing parts of the Chinese economy and a nearly $10 trillion dollar market.

In this webinar, members of our Global Equity team, Casey Preyss, portfolio manager, and Terry O’Bryan, head of international equity trading, discuss the China A opportunity and how it can be implemented in a portfolio.
