William Blair China A-Shares Growth Strategy
Invented in China, Not Made in China
The China A-Share market provides access to compelling long-term investment themes in China, in particular the emerging consumer and technological innovation.
Uncorrelated, under-researched, and inefficient, the China A-Share market provides significant diversification potential to global investors.
A focused portfolio of 30-70 quality growth companies across the market-cap spectrum provides access to one of the largest, most liquid, and fast-growing markets in the world.
Disciplined Investment Approach
Combines deep fundamental research with systematic inputs to consistently identify alpha opportunities.
Consistent Philosophy, Process
William Blair has over 20 years of experience investing in emerging markets with the same philosophy and process.
Long Experience in China
We have been investing in China since 1996 and in China A-Shares since 2013.
We manage $16.4 billion in emerging market securities across all strategies, $12.8 billion in dedicated emerging market strategies, and $2.3 billion in Chinese equities (including $1.0 billion in China A-Shares) across all strategies as of December 31, 2023.
Emerging markets make up a disproportionate percentage of our quality growth universe: 47% and China represents close to a third of that universe.
As of December 31, 2023
