MarketGrader New China ESG Index


The MarketGrader New China ESG Index consists of the 100 most fundamentally sound companies with the best growth prospects, based on MarketGrader's ratings, in China's new economy sectors. All its constituents are domiciled in China and traded publicly in the Shanghai Stock Exchange, the Shenzhen Stock Exchange, the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, Nasdaq or the New York Stock Exchange. The index constituents are selected from what MarketGrader considers to be "New China's" sectors, or those that are expected to drive the country's future economic development in the 21st century. These include the consumer discretionary, consumer staples, health care and technology sectors.

Index constituents are selected on the basis of the strength of their fundamentals as measured by the MarketGrader Score (0 to 100), which seeks to identify high quality companies with strong growth prospects without overpaying for their shares. Additionally, MakretGrader has partnered with OWL Analytics, a pioneer in ESG consensus ratings, to ensure the Index selects only the companies with the highest ESG score in their regional category.
