Diversify to mitigate sector risks

Onshore A-shares and Hong Kong-listed equities focus on different sectors of the Chinese equity market offering more diversification to investors keen on tapping on China's growth.

Generally, energy and utility companies tend to be better represented in China equities listed in Hong Kong, and new stocks are regularly being listed on the Hong Kong exchange – which is growing more representative of the new “digital China”.

Meanwhile, so-called “new economy” companies and small- to mid-cap stocks (in areas such as consumer, IT, industrials and healthcare) tend to be better represented in A-shares.

Diversify to mitigate portfolio risk

China A-Shares has shown low return correlations with global equity markets. When the Fund is held as part of an investment portfolio, it provides investors lower volatility and market specific risks.
