Capital Appreciation

We are excited about the opportunities in China’s A-share market, which we believe is significantly underpenetrated by foreign investors compared with more developed Asian markets.

Opportunities lie in companies that are helping China move up the value chain and support national goals of patriotic innovation, smart living, environmental improvement and sharing society. The pace of change is astounding. Businesses that provide products and services to increasingly affluent consumers: fashion, leisure, connectivity, entertainment, can grow well above GDP.
