Robeco launches Chinese equities fund

Rotterdam-based asset management firm Robeco has opened its Chinese A-share equities fund to external subscriptions from institutional investors.

The fund offers European investors direct access to the Shanghai and Shenzhen A-share markets through an actively managed Ucits-compliant vehicle.

Robeco’s Hong Kong office is responsible for the day-to-day management of the fund, while Robeco’s Shanghai branch provides local advice on the fund’s investment strategy.

The fund, which uses the MSCI China A International Index as its reference index, is registered in Luxembourg and additional registrations and availability will be based upon investor demand in Robeco’s key markets in Europe.

Victoria Mio, the fund’s portfolio manager, said: “The China A-share market is the second largest market after the US. It also has one of the lowest correlations with its global peers and therefore offers a useful tool for improving portfolio diversification.”
