China A-Shares: Too Big to Ignore

Presented by

Brendan Maton

About this talk

There are valid reasons why this is the case. For starters, A‐shares are simply not on the “radar” of global investors, who rely on the policy benchmark to guide their allocation decisions. When a market is not represented in the benchmark, it is typically ignored. Thus, investing in A‐shares is often considered an “off‐benchmark” bet and tends to be opportunistic in nature. In this webcast, MSCI will discuss the findings from their recent research paper “China A-Shares: Too Big to Ignore” and how investors can look beyond the current accessibility issues and should consider A-shares in light of the following: Agenda: · What are global investors truly missing when they avoid investing in A‐shares? · What are some of “implicit costs” of not having A‐shares in a global equity portfolio? · What is the potential role of A‐shares (if any) in global equity allocation?
