Schroders launches first fund investing purely in onshore China

RELATED TOPICS​

Schroders has launched the Schroder ISF China A-Share – a strategy focused on investing in onshore China equities providing investors with access to companies in the world’s second largest equity market, with the aim of securing capital growth. 

The strategy currently invests in onshore China A-shares through the Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect and Shenzhen-Hong Kong Stock Connect. The onshore China equity market offers a diverse opportunity set of over 3500 stocks and has low correlation to other major equity markets. The investment team will focus on small to mid-cap stocks with a quality bias and take an active, bottom-up approach to finding the best opportunities.  
 
Schroder ISF China A-Share will be managed by Schroders’ Asian Equities team, with Jack Lee, Head of China A-Share Research, as the lead investment professional. The team will harness Schroders’ data science capabilities to provide a conviction ‘edge’ to investment decisions.
 
The fund launched on 6 December 2017 and is managed by Schroders’ Asian Equities team who currently manage 41 billion on behalf of clients around the world.
 
Jack Lee, Lead Investment Professional and Head of China A-Share Research says: “In my 19 years of investing in China, the opening of the ‘Stock Connect’ is providing one of the best opportunities for investment in what is an often a misunderstood market. 
 
“Through our investment lens, we are able to identify exciting opportunities in the dynamic mid to small cap space, particularly within the fast-growing sectors such as technology, healthcare and the consumption space.  It is in the mid to mid-cap space that the onshore China market features many compelling companies that demonstrate a combination of strong management and product/service leadership in the fastest growing (soon to be the largest) internal marketplace in the world.”
 
John Troiano, Global Head of Distribution at Schroders, says: “Schroders has moved quickly to act on the huge opportunity that the opening of the China A-share market has presented for our international clients.
 
“We believe that this active, bottom-up approach will provide investors a strong source of growth, through one of the fastest growing markets in the world; and portfolio diversification, through an equity market that is largely under-represented in global portfolios and has low correlation to other markets.”
