BEA Union Investment China Gateway Fund

Investing in Chinese Stocks and Bonds to Fully Capture Their Investment Opportunities

Chinese Stock Markets Expected to Continue Benefitting from Both Old and New Economies



  • Overall, macroeconomic data in China looks rosy. We are positive towards China’s stock markets, as the conditions of abundant liquidity, improving corporate earnings, and attractive valuations remain solid
  • The following sectors will continue to benefit from favourable government policies and increased demand


Policy Coordination Broadens Investor Choice in Chinese Companies



  • Many mainland Chinese state-owned enterprises and corporates are choosing to raise capital in free-market Hong Kong, thus widening the opportunities for global capital to invest in China
  • The inclusion of Chinese A-shares into the MSCI Emerging Markets Index and the introduction of the Shanghai and Shenzhen Stock Connects (particularly the northbound trading channels) have created incentives for overseas investors to  invest in China
  • Allowing companies with weighted voting rights to list on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange is expected to enhance Hong Kong's  attractiveness as a place for companies from new-economy sectors to list

Significant Rise in the Turnover of Northbound Trades for  Shanghai and Shenzhen Connects Last Year


Importance of Access to Channels for Investing in Chinese Stocks and Bonds

  • The Chinese government has recently relaxed its restrictions on capital markets and strengthened the connections of stock and bond markets between mainland China and Hong Kong through innovative schemes such as the Shanghai and Shenzhen Stock Connects as well as the Bond Connect, thereby enlarging the scope of investment
  • The BEA Union Investment China Gateway Fund is a new China mixed-asset fund with access to both onshore and offshore investment channels and is managed by a team of seasoned investment professionals
