How to position for the arrival of the world’s second superpower

Please join Michael, Felix and myself on the 22nd September at 10am (UK time) as we look to provide a further update on China and its government bond market, as well as introduce the 1167 Active Funds ICAV - China Government Bond Fund that we intend to launch this November, subject to regulatory approval. Most of us are already aware of China as an equity story. Yet the surprising thing is that it is China’s government bond market which has delivered the more enviable performance relative to its G10 equivalents over the last two decades. With consistently positive yields, low capital volatility, and a proven track record as ballast when global risk assets hit rough waters, China government bonds are one of the last great undiscovered asset classes. We strongly believe that the China Government Bond Fund will be a great addition to your portfolio's and we welcome you to learn more about this exciting asset class. Click here to Register
