    MSCI just added China A-shares in its emerging market and global indexes.  BlackRock began investing onshore in China in 2012 and will be in to shed light on the early-movers’ advantage:

    • BlackRock believes the MSCI inclusion of China A shares into indexes (3.4% of MSCI EM Index by November 2019, per MSCI announcement in March 2019) may provide a strong tailwind from index buyers
    • Given low current foreign ownership (less than 4%) significant capital is likely to move into China
    • Relative to China’s economic relevance, China is under-represented within client portfolios
    • Both the economy and equity markets are becoming more shareholder friendly

     

    BlackRock will elaborate on applying an active quant approach in China:

    • Potential ideal ground for Big Data and Machine Learning tools
    • New sources of information available
    • Technology such as machine-reading and AI are required for this unstructured information
    • Quant in combination with traditional approaches may provide powerful results
