Why China?

Heading 1

Stockconnect opened the world to overseas Investors wanting to tap on the World’s largest economy after the US in terms of size. In 2021, China's actual use of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) hit US$173.48 billion in US dollar terms, up by 20.2 per cent year on year, according to the Ministry of Commerce. In US dollar terms, China's FDI totalled US$144.37 billion in 2020, up by 5.7 per cent.

 

The unique features of China’s onshore market present an unparalleled opportunity for bottom-up stock selectors to generate alpha. 

 

Retail investors make up 42% of the holding value of the Chinese A-shares free-float and contribute over 80% of its trading volume. This comparatively high retail participation rate is unmatched by any other major exchange.

 

Chinese companies, unlike their US Counterparts rely heavily on equity financing and tend to rely on bank loans and retained earnings.

 

The speculative nature of retail investors means this market is often moved by rumours rather than company fundamentals. These market inefficiencies often lead to very high turnover. Indices that  create opportunities for active managers with local market knowledge, a long-term investment horizon that looks through short-term volatility, and a rigorous valuation framework.

 

The Chinese Government’s hard handed approach in regulatory intervention has been a constant source of  concern with Investors. Big internet giants such as  the likes Alibaba and Didi amongst others have seen massive fines and depressed stock prices fluctuations. 

 

The market potential of the Chinese companies, coupled with their relatively low valuations as compared to their US and European counterparts present opportunities for diversification.
