In two weeks, China will debut its Nasdaq-inspired board for technology companies developed domestically, which could put Chinese technology exchange-traded funds (ETFs) in play. U.S.-China trade negotiations may appear to be at a standstill, but that doesn't mean investors should sour their taste for Chinese equities, according to Lewis Kaufman, a portfolio manager at Artisan Partners. U.S. President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping recently met at the G-20 summit in Japan, agreeing to hold back on further tariffs until the two largest economies can iron out a trade deal.
U.S.-China trade negotiations may appear to be at a standstill, but that doesn't mean investors should sour their taste for Chinese equities, according to Lewis Kaufman, a portfolio manager at Artisan Partners. “Regardless of what ultimately happens with the China trade tensions, there is a robustness to China that doesn’t exist anywhere else in the emerging markets,” said Kaufman. It’s very difficult to access domestic demand through the vehicles we would wish to use in so many emerging-market countries,” Kaufman added.
The topic of technology has been a point of contention as the U.S.-China trade war rages on, but the world's second largest economy isn't content with just sitting on its laurels while the tariff battle plays out. In fact, global management consultancy Bain & Company says China is making "tremendous" progress with respect to its technology sector. Over the weekend at the G-20 summit in Japan, U.S. President Donald Trump said he could reverse restrictions that prevent American companies from selling their products to Chinese technology giant Huawei as part of a trade agreement.
Today, the South China Morning Post reported that the US and China have agreed to a tentative truce to the trade war and are working on statements in this regard. The truce would delay tariffs on an additional $300 billion worth of Chinese goods entering the US.
