H shares forecast to soar

Business | 17 Apr 2018 3:40 pm

H shares are likely to offer double digit returns this year, says Blackrock head of China equities, Helen Zhu Yue.

Also, the expansion of stock connect trading scheme quotas recently have made A shares more attractive she says, adding that institutional investors have included A shares in their portfolios earlier.

Index Complier MSCI will in June include 222 large cap A shares in the MSCI Emerging Markets Index.

But Zhu says capital will not flow back into the mainland, given that institutional investors still favor Asia, especially Hong Kong.

In 2018, China's economy will be mainly driven by consumption, Zhu says. She forecast 6.5 percent GDP growth for the year.

Responding to concerns over the US-Sino trade spat, she says the high level rhetoric will linger for three to six months. She reckons there will be negotiations in the end.
