KraneShares Launches Model Portfolios With Krane Dynamic Emerging Markets Strategy

NEW YORK, NY July 13, 2020 – KraneShares, a global asset management firm known for its China-focused exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and innovative China investment strategies, announced the launch of Krane Model Portfolios. This new offering seeks to provide meaningful diversification to investors through core, thematic, and dynamic models within China, Emerging Markets (EM), and Global categories. 

The first portfolio in Krane’s new suite offering is the Krane Dynamic Emerging Markets Strategy. This portfolio can provide outperformance opportunities by pairing a distinct allocation to China’s equity market within an Emerging Markets strategy. The portfolio dynamically adjusts China’s weighting based on a proprietary, time-tested, and systematic methodology. The model can act as a comprehensive, stand-alone emerging market portfolio or as a complement to an existing strategy. 

“China’s weight within the portfolio can range between 10% and 70%, based on the current 40% benchmark exposure to China,” said Jonathan Shelon, Chief Operating Officer at KraneShares. “The portfolio can also invest up to 10% in cash, to preserve capital. We believe this dynamic approach can produce an important advantage in the portfolio’s return and risk profile when compared to static emerging market investments, particularly in turbulent times.”

Financial advisors can implement the Krane Dynamic Emerging Markets Strategy through model delivery or by having Krane manage the strategy directly for them.

“Within emerging markets, KraneShares believes China is in a league of its own; an asset class unto itself distinguished by its market size and unparalleled growth,” said Jonathan Krane, Chief Executive Officer of KraneShares. “We believe that incorporating a strategic China investment model that distinguishes China from the rest of EM can enhance overall emerging market performance. The Krane Dynamic Emerging Markets Strategy is a great tool to enable a completion strategy around China.”
