Baillie Gifford unveils Greater China Oeic

Baillie Gifford has today launched its Greater China fund.

The Oeic gives investors access to companies from mainland China, Taiwan and Hong Kong. It is now open to the wider retail market after first opening for trading as an institutional product in November last year.

The fund is managed by Mike Gush and Richard Sneller and is benchmarked against the MSCI Golden Dragon index.

Baillie Gifford says it expects China to emerge faster and stronger from the global crisis than other parts of the world. Over the long-term, the asset manager forecasts that fundamentals such as urbanisation, high savings levels and infrastructure investment will continue to drive growth.

Market inefficiencies create attractive opportunities for investors, the group adds.

Minimum investment in the fund is 1,000 with an initial charge of 5% and an annual management charge of 1.75%. The initial charge will be reduced to 3% between July 1 and August 28. The fund is listed on all major platforms.
