China is the second largest economy in the world, yet many do not have direct exposure to China’s mainland market or the Chinese A-shares.
On the upcoming webcast, How to Prepare for MSCI’s China Change, Eric Legunn, ETF Strategist for DWS Asset Management, Todd Rosenbluth, Director of ETF & Mutual Fund Research for CFRA, and Sean Edkins, Director and Head of ETF Sales and Strategic Partnerships for DWS Asset Management, will outline best practices for diversified portfolio construction and look to investment options to help shore up a portfolio that is underweight in China.
For example, the Xtrackers Harvest CSI 300 China A-Shares ETF (NYSEArca: ASHR) is the largest exchange traded fund dedicated to China A-shares.
A-shares are the Chinese stocks trading on mainland exchanges in Shanghai and Shenzhen. In June, MSCI Inc. said it will include China A shares in the MSCI Emerging Markets Index and the MSCI ACWI Index beginning in June 2018.
