China Equity

Seeking to deliver long-term outperformance through a contrarian style and absolute return mindset.

Reasons to invest

Strong, stable team with long-term track record

The Asia ex-Japan Equity team has a lot of experience covering the asset class and has worked together for more than a decade.

Large and liquid, with likely increasing importance in key benchmarks

The China A-share market is the second largest globally by market cap, liquidity and turnover.

Low correlation

Low correlations to other global stock exchanges, offering risk-adjusted diversification benefits.


Capital structure inefficiencies provide opportunities to add alpha opportunistically.

Contrarian style is differentiated

A contrarian style and absolute return mindset that we believe works well in volatile and inefficient markets.

Appropriate ESG integration

Effective engagement with companies open to improving their ESG profile.
