London and Hong Kong China specialist Value Partners is responding to consumer demand by launching its first All China Equity Fund.
Managed by Investment Director Man Wing Chung the fund contains a blend of onshore and offshore China holdings. So, offering investors full exposure to Core China, the new fund provides an alternative to the group’s Greater China Equity Fund which included holdings from other parts of Asia including Taiwan.
The new strategy will be benchmarked against the MSCI China All Shares Index and harness the group’s bottom up stock picking capabilities. Following the launch, the Value Partners Greater China Equity Fund will be closed, and its assets will be moved over to the new All China Equity Fund.
Head of Business Development for EMEA Hendrik von Ripperda-Cosyn said “We’ve seen an increase in demand from investors in the UK and Europe for a China only solution and so are responding to their requirements. We want to offer our investors quality exposure to the region so the fund will invest in companies with strong fundamentals that are trading at humble valuations with good governance and management.”
From an investment perspective Investment Director Man Wing Chung said, “We are confident about the long term economic and corporate development in China and we’re looking at several themes such as consumption, innovation and traditional businesses which we feel are both sustainable and consistently present interesting opportunities for institutional investors.”
