ASX: CNEW

 

CNEW provides investors with access to a portfolio of the most fundamentally sound companies domiciled and listed in China with the best growth prospects from the following sectors:

  • Technology
  • Healthcare
  • Consumer Staples
  • Consumer Discretionary

It is these sectors which are the New Economy.

 

What is the New Economy?

Traditionally emerging markets like China have been dependent on financials, energy and materials. As GDP per capita has increased, domestic policy and reform has been focused on transitioning the economy to be consumption led.

There are four forces behind this transition in which consumer-oriented sectors are gradually replacing heavy industry and low cost manufacturing as the country’s economic engines:

1.   Affluence and a growing middle class

The difficulty for Australian investors wanting to invest in this growth opportunity is gaining access. Many of the Chinese companies in the New Economy aren’t available via other countries’ exchanges and only trade on the mainland Shanghai and Shenzhen stock exchanges.

A RQFII licence holder, VanEck can trade these shares and for the first time we are offering Australian investors a way to step into tomorrow’s prosperity today via an ETF on ASX.
