CSOP and Hermes launch A Shares fund
CSOP Asset Management and Hermes have announced the launch of the CSOP Hermes A Share Fund, a Dublin domicilied Ucits vehicle with weekly liquidity. CSOP is acting as the Investment Manager for the Fund, whilst Hermes is acting as the Investment Advisor
The Fund invests directly in A shares through the Investment Manager’s Renminbi Qualified Foreign Institutional Investor (RQFII) quota, offering international investors direct access to private fund managers known as “sunshine managers”.
Mike Curry, Co-Head of Hermes Asia said: “It is exciting to be launching this truly unique fund offering international investors access to the very best of China’s fund management talent. CSOP’s knowledge of the Chinese market and their experience managing a number of existing RQFII vehicles allows us provide access to a specialist area that has previously been off-radar or inaccessible to international investors. With ongoing reforms, structural shifts and growing liberalisation, China is currently presenting exceptional opportunities for best-in-class stock pickers.”
Selected sunshine managers are sub advisors to the Fund and all trade recommendations are executed through CSOP’s A share platform and administered and custodised independently with HSBC.
