East Capital: East Capital launches China Environmental strategy

East Capital, a specialist in emerging and frontier markets, is pleased to
announce the transition of its East Capital China Fund to a thematic
environmental strategy for China. Called East Capital China Environmental,
the strategy looks to capture the favourable investment backdrop that the
environmental challenges offer in China.

The fund, a Luxemburg domiciled UCITS vehicle, was launched in 2007 and
received in early 2015 approval to invest up to 100 per cent in A-shares via
the Stock Connect program. From 18 January 2016, the fund will mainly invest
in issuers whose products, services, technologies and infrastructure bring
sustainable development solutions to environmental challenges in China. The
investment universe, which consists of onshore (A-shares) and offshore China
equities, includes sectors such as clean energy, energy efficiency, clean
transport, clean water&air, environmental assets and sustainable agriculture.

Karine Hirn, Partner at East Capital comments:

“The fight against pollution is a fundamental and structural trend in China,
and has also become a governmental priority. This implies strong policy
support and large investments, as well as stricter implementation of
regulations for the non-environmental friendly companies.
China is the largest clean-tech market in the world and the investment
universe of environmental stocks consists of fast-growing innovative
companies and often upcoming global leaders.”

The fund is managed by East Capital’s Chief Investment Officer and Partner
Peter Elam Håkansson, supported by an experienced local Hong Kong team led by
François Perrin. François Perrin was previously head of Greater China at BNP
Paribas Investment Partners Asia and recently joined East Capital, adding
considerable expertise in the management of clean technologies and
environmental funds.

“The new fund is a unique strategy to be exposed to a very attractive
investment theme, and also offers interesting investment opportunities
through valuation arbitrage in onshore and offshore equities across the value
chain. Our investment capability in the A-shares market, combined with
François Perrin’s unique background and expertise are key to this strategy”
,adds Hirn.

East Capital was the first asset manager in Northern Europe to get a QFII
license, providing access to China’s onshore equity markets, and in March
2015 the first asset manager to receive approval by the CSSF in Luxembourg
for the East Capital China Fund to invest up to 100% in A-shares via the
Stock Connect program.
