Azimut IM launches new index on China
Az Investment management (Azimut Group) has launched AZ CSI300 ACTIVE, the first index with active management on China.
The index AZ CSI 300 ACTIVE has been launched at the end of June and follows the features of Chinese index CSI 300, trying to redistribute equally among sectors and avoid excessive focus on financial titles in the 300 stocks that invest in Shanghai and Shenzen’s markets.
“We have redistributed the Chinese’s index composition in order to balance all sectors,” Giulio Pagliai, co-CEO of AZ Investment Management in Shanghai said.
The AZ CSI300 ACTIVE Index starts with an equal weighting by industry of all the constituents and adds an active component for 30% of the portfolio.
