Investment Strategy:

KBND is benchmarked to the Bloomberg 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.

KBND Overview:

  • Invests in treasuries (i.e. government bonds) and attempts to provide attractive yields relative to other government bond markets with a monthly distribution.
  • KBND offers access to the securities being included in Bloomberg broad fixed income indexes and investment opportunities within the second largest bond market in the world.
  • For investors seeking diversification within their global government bond allocations, KBND offers low correlations to other major government bond markets.

Bloomberg China Bond Inclusion Overview:

  • The inclusion process began in April 2019 and is expected to conclude at the end of 2020.
  • The market estimates nearly $150 billion of fund inflows into China’s $13 trillion onshore bond market.1
  • China’s government bonds are a focus of the inclusion and China has already replaced South Korea as the top issuer by weight within the Bloomberg Emerging Market Local Currency Government Bond Index.
