The fund aims to provide long term growth and is designed for investors who are looking for exposure to the Chinese equity market. The fund invests predominantly in the shares of companies listed on the Hong Kong stock market and B-shares listed on the Shenzhen or Shanghai stock market. It does not invest in A-shares, but may invest in companies with Variable Interest Entity (VIE) structures to gain exposure to industries with foreign ownership restrictions. The fund is actively managed by our investment team, who will select stocks to try to take advantage of opportunities they have identified.
