Six DFMs reveal their China A-shares exposure
By Portfolio Adviser, 8 Jun 18
MSCI’s inclusion of 233 China A-shares in its three widely-tracked indices is expected to further open up the country to foreign investors and could result in the launch of more Asia ex China funds down the line. Here six wealth managers outline how their portfolios are exposed to A-shares.
“If we see a smooth transitional phase it will likely lead to a more significant increase in Chinese companies’ exposure in indices and, of course, this will have implications for global asset allocators and global funds. We do already have some exposure to China through Asian and emerging market funds along with domestic-led China funds through structures such as Oeics and investment trusts where discounts to their net asset values make them an interesting entry point.”
