MSIM launches Luxembourg SICAV domiciled China A-shares Fund

RELATED TOPICS​

Morgan Stanley Investment Management (MSIM) has launched a Luxembourg SICAV domiciled fund version of the Morgan Stanley Investment Funds’ (MS INVF) China A-shares Fund.

Previously only available to institutional investors in a separate account format, the SICAV domiciled fund aims to capitalise on pricing anomalies and inefficiencies in the A-shares market. The investment team seeks to do this through the construction of a high-conviction portfolio of high-quality companies in industries that they believe could grow faster than overall GDP growth; have the potential to gain market share; and could be able to maintain or expand their profit margin. The result is a concentrated portfolio typically consisting of 25 to 40 active positions which the investment team believes could be some of China’s current and future leading companies.
 
The strategy on which the Luxembourg domiciled fund is based, the Morgan Stanley China A Equity strategy, has won AsianInvestor’s asset class awards for public markets in A-shares equity for three consecutive years, 2015, 2016 and 2017.
 
Hong Kong-based lead portfolio manager, Gary Cheung, says: “We believe China’s economy will shift from being driven by investments and exports, to one that is driven more by consumption and services. In our opinion, exposure to A-shares will be vital for investors to participate in this growth.” 
 
“The China A-shares Fund is another example of how MSIM adds value to clients through active management,” says Paul Price, MSIM’s Global Head of Sales. “Across the platform, our equity portfolios are run by long-tenured portfolio managers with consistent philosophies that deliver low turnover and concentrated products. We’re delighted to be able to offer our China A capabilities to a broader client base via the SICAV structure,” Price adds.
