About this talk

An overview of the KraneShares Bloomberg Barclays China Bond Inclusion UCITS ETF (KBND). KBND offers investors access to the RMB-denominated securities being included in the Bloomberg Barclays Global Aggregate Index, an index with an estimated $2.5 trillion in assets passively tracking or actively managed against it.1 In April 2019, Bloomberg began including Chinese RMB-denominated government and policy bank securities to the Bloomberg Barclays Global Aggregate Index, phased in over a 20 month period. The full inclusion is expected to attract around $150 billion of fund inflows into China’s $13 trillion bond market.2 KBND is benchmarked to the Bloomberg Barclays China Treasury and Policy Bank 9% Capped Index, which is designed to track the performance of China’s onshore renminbi-denominated government and government-related bond market. The Fund seeks to invest at least 80% of its assets in a basket of fixed income securities issued by either China’s Ministry of Finance itself or government-owned banks within China.
