JP Morgan Asset Management (JPMAM) has unveiled a strategy it says aims to capture cross-border opportunities in China’s bond market.
The China Bond Opportunities Fund, available to international investors, seeks to provide diversified access to China’s “vast” fixed income market.
According to the firm, China’s bond market has grown rapidly over the last two decades to reach $14 trillion (€12.4 trillion) and is increasingly gaining recognition from global investors.
Elisa Ng, head of China and Hong Kong Funds at JPMAM, said: “The current low or even zero interest rate environment across developed markets has made it more challenging for investors to find yield opportunities, making the income potential of China bonds more appealing.”
Ng added that the strategy was designed and launched to meet this specific investor demand, seeking income flexibly across the entire China bond universe.
The fund’s managers employ a top-down macroeconomic approach with bottom-up fundamental research.
