Morgan Stanley IM unveils China A Shares fund

Morgan_StanleyMorgan Stanley Investment Management has launched a Luxembourg-domiciled Sicav version of its China A-shares Fund.

The fund, which was previously only available to institutional investors in a separate account format, aims to capitalise on pricing anomalies and inefficiencies in the A-shares market.

The investment team will construct a concentrated portfolio typically consisting of 25 to 40 active positions.

Gary Cheung, lead portfolio manager, said: “We believe China’s economy will shift from being driven by investments and exports, to one that is driven more by consumption and services. In our opinion, exposure to A-shares will be vital for investors to participate in this growth.” 

Morgan Stanley IM has $447 billion (€371.5 billion) in assets under management.
