About this talk
A significant milestone has been achieved for China and global investors alike: the inclusion of China A Shares into the FTSE Global Equity Index Series (GEIS).
On June 24th 2019, FTSE Russell officially welcomed China A Shares into FTSE GEIS, including more than 1,000 A Shares constituents. The initial tranche of Phase 1 is now complete, with tranches two and three scheduled for September 2019 and March 2020, respectively. It is forecast that China A Shares could represent nearly 5.5% of the FTSE Emerging All Cap Index when all three tranches are complete.
