Download Fact Sheet

Investment Strategy:

KA50 is benchmarked to the MSCI China A 50 Connect Index, consisting of 50 large-cap Shanghai and Shenzhen listed stocks (A-shares) available through Stock Connect. This Index offers the first officially recognized Futures contracts for Stock Connect-eligible A-shares, representing a powerful risk management tool for international investors. KA50 will focus on the largest, most liquid stocks, which receive most foreign interest and inflows and may benefit from increased global investment in China’s onshore market over the long term.

MSCI China A 50 Connect Index Features:

  • Designed to meet the requirements of the growing number of investors in China’s mainland A-share markets.
  • In addition to offering high correlation to broad China A-share benchmarks, the MSCI China A 50 Connect Index may offer greater liquidity and investability due to its balanced sector weighting methodology and focus on China’s largest, most liquid securities.
  • An expected reduction in tracking error and bid-ask spreads given that market makers can directly hedge exposure with Futures.

China A-Share Internationalization Highlights:

  • China A-Shares are vastly underrepresented in global indexes. While the United States has a weight of 58.67% in the MSCI All Country World Index, China only has a weight of 4.85%1
  • MSCI is realigning China’s overall weight in their Global Standard Indexes through an incremental inclusion process. Upon completion, China A-shares are predicted to account for about 20% of the MSCI Emerging Market (EM) Index1.
  • Greater accessibility and inclusion in global indexes has led to significant foreign inflows into the China A-share market over the past several years.
