Morgan Stanley IM launches China A-shares fund

Morgan Stanley IM launches China A-shares fund

Morgan Stanley Investment Management has launched a Luxembourg-domiciled fund to mirror its existing China A-shares approach.

The MS INVF China A-shares fund was launched on 29 December 2017 and aims to capitalise on pricing anomalies and inefficiencies in the A-shares market.

Charged with running the fund is Hong Kong-based portfolio manager Gary Cheung, who has a specific focus on China and China A-shares.

Cheung first joined Morgan Stanley in 2008 and manages the China A Shares fund, which was first launched in 2006.

‘We believe China’s economy will shift from being driven by investments and exports, to one that is driven more by consumption and services.

'In our opinion, exposure to A-shares will be vital for investors to participate in this growth,’ he said.

The high-conviction strategy invests in high-quality industries that the investment team believe could grow faster than overall GDP growth and aims to spot some of China’s future leading companies.

The newly-created SICAV fund allows the strategy to be more widely available, where the Morgan Stanley Investment Funds China A-shares fund had previously only been available to institutional investors in a separate account format.
