Heptagon launches China A shares equity fund

Heptagon Capital has announced the launch of an actively managed China A shares fund.

Launched in partnership with China’s third largest fund manager, Harvest Global Investments, Heptagon says the Harvest China A Shares Equity Fund is the first UCITS fund to follow an actively managed strategy in the China A shares equity market and that provides for daily liquidity under the Renminbi Qualified Foreign Institutional Investor (RQFII) program.

The fund will be launched on Heptagon’s Irish UCITS platform with Harvest as the sub-investment manager.

According to Heptagon: “The Harvest portfolio managers employ a Growth at a reasonable price (‘GARP’) approach and focuses on well-positioned companies, with superior growth and quality.”

The group says, unhedged dollar, euro and sterling share classes are to be offered by the fund.

Peng Choy, CEO at Harvest Global Investments in Hong Kong says: “Harvest was one of the first groups to receive RQFII status in 2011, and since then we have been at the vanguard of efforts to allow international investors to gain exposure to the economic opportunities in China and indeed the wider Asian markets, across all asset classes.”
