Fund aim

The L&G E Fund MSCI China A UCITS ETF (the "ETF") aims to track the performance of the MSCI China A Onshore Index (the "Index").

  • The Chinese domestic economy

Invest in the growing importance of the Chinese domestic economy

  • China "A" shares

Access a broad universe of Chinese A-shares

  • Efficient access

Enables efficient access to a basket of domestic stocks that may be difficult otherwise

MSCI China A Onshore Index

The Index is comprised of “A shares” issued by large and medium sized companies domiciled in the People’s Republic of China (the “PRC”) which are publically traded on the Shanghai and Shenzhen stock exchanges. A company is only eligible for inclusion in the Index if it is of a sufficient size (determined by reference to (1) the total market value of the company and (2) the proportion of its A shares that is deemed to be available for purchase in the public equity markets in the PRC, i.e. not subject to any restrictions or strategic ownership) and if its A shares are sufficiently “liquid” (a measure of how actively they are traded). Within the Index, each company is then weighted according to its relative size.

    Key risks

    The value of an investment and any income taken from it is not guaranteed and can go down as well as up. You may not get back the amount you originally invested.

    Past performance is not a guide to the future.

    The ETF's ability to closely track the Index will be affected by its ability to purchase and/or sell the Index constituents and any legal or regulatory restrictions or disruptions affecting them. Such factors tend to be more prevalent in Chinese stock markets and may also affect the ETF's ability to determine its net asset value ("NAV") and/or lead to the suspension of subscriptions and redemptions of ETF shares.

    The ETF's ability to closely track the Index will also be affected by transaction costs and taxes incurred when adjusting its investment portfolio generally and/or to mirror any periodic adjustments to the constituents of the Index.

    The ETF's performance may be impacted by any gradual and/or sudden changes to any applicable rules, laws, regulations, economic policies and political environment in China and any governmental intervention in the stock and/or foreign exchange markets which may limit the ETF's ability to invest in A-shares, limit the ETF's ability to repatriate its cash out of China or affect the ETF's rights over its investments.

    Corporate governance and accounting/reporting standards for companies in China are typically lower than developed markets and may affect the value of the ETF's investments.

    The ETF may not be able to procure additional RQFII investment quota to match investor demand for the ETF which may cause subscriptions to be suspended and the ETF shares to trade at a premium to NAV on stock exchanges.

    The PRC tax authorities do not currently impose capital gains tax (“CGT”) on the ETF’s investments in A-shares pursuant to a temporary exemption that was implemented on 17 November 2014. However, there is a risk that the PRC tax authorities may at any time (and without notice) revoke the temporary exemption and seek to impose CGT on the ETF’s investments which would adversely affect investors at such time.
