The sustainable investor for a changing world

BNP Paribas China Equity


Tap into the growth and diversification potential of Chinese equities.


Chinese equities are among the world’s largest markets, comprising both onshore and offshore companies. They represent over USD 10 trillion in market capitalisation and look set to benefit from long-term trends such as China’s transition to a service- and consumption-led economy.



BNP Paribas China Equity Fund seeks to capitalise on the growth prospects of companies in the “all-China” universe. That is, onshore (e.g. China A-shares) and offshore (e.g. Hong Kong, Taiwan, US American Depository Receipts) companies.

We focus on three key structural themes:

  • Technology and innovation
  • Consumption upgrading
  • Industry consolidation

Within each of these themes, we identify companies based on factors like industry and company dynamics, balance sheet strength, environmental, social and governance (ESG) assessment and valuations. This enables us to build a portfolio that targets quality stocks with high growth potential, strong management and cash flow predictability.

The fund is currently rated five stars by Morningstar*.



David Choa heads our Greater China Equities team. David has more than 17 years of financial experience – from consulting, to corporate finance and equity investing, with a focus on China. He is supported by a team of portfolio managers and analysts from our offices in Hong Kong and Shanghai.

The team also has access to a senior economist dedicated to China, our Quantitative Research Group and our Sustainability Centre.

Today, we manage over USD 3 billion in China-focused strategies.
