Investment Opportunities in China A-Shares


    June 2018

    China offers favorable market characteristics for global investors.

    China has one of the largest, most liquid, and fastest-growing equity markets in the world.

    China A-Shares are under-represented in global equity indices.

    And, the China A-Share market is uncorrelated, under-researched, and inefficient, providing investment opportunities for quality growth investors.

    In particular, opportunities abound in China's “new economy.”

    In this webcast, Vivian Lin Thurston, CFA, partner, a global research analyst covering Chinese equities at William Blair Investment Management, discusses three investible themes in China: the rising middle class and growing domestic consumption; innovation and technology-led growth; and the secular growth of healthcare spending.
