The Reopening of China’s Economy and Investing Post COVID-19 Quarantine:
Thursday, May 14, 2020, 8:30 am - 9:30 am EDT

With the spread of the virus nearly halted, life in China has cautiously returned to normal. Despite the turmoil in global markets caused by COVID-19, thus far, China seems to have been successful in its approach to fighting the pandemic. But what does the "new normal" look like in China? And what has the economic impact of COVID-19 been so far? We believe there will be lessons for the rest of the world from China's experience as we look forward with optimism to re-openings around the globe.

Please join us for a webinar exploring the topic: COVID-19 and China's Reopening. The event will feature a joint presentation by KraneShares Chief Investment Officer, Brendan Ahern, and our Beijing-based colleague Kevin Liu, Executive Director, at China International Capital Corporation.

Key Topics:

  • What does the "new normal" look like in China?
  • Decoding the potential impact of the upcoming "two-sessions" policy meetings
  • China's earnings season results/outlook
  • Winners and losers: investing post-quarantine
