Rotating Investment Masterclass I: Capturing growth opportunities in China A Shares Ken Wong, Client Portfolio Manager & Bryant Tan, Assistant Manager Product & Distribution

Despite the recent events that have seen equity markets pull back, China A shares continue to outperform most global equity markets. We believe that China’s shift from an investment-driven economy to a consumption and services led one, would lead to a balanced and sustainable growth trajectory. With low expectations, positive earnings growth coupled with attractive valuations, we believe now is the right time for investors to take this opportunity to invest in a market that continues to provide a lot of upside potential. Find out how Eastspring’s China onshore equity team utilises their understanding of the local market together with international risk management standards in constructing a portfolio that aims to outperform through economic cycles and market volatilities.
