Ogier has advised on the launch of Hong Kong-based MegaTrust’s new fund focusing on China A-shares.

Partner Kate Hodson led the Ogier Hong Kong team advising on the Cayman law aspects of the launch of Yangtze Fund IV by MegaTrust Investments, a boutique fund manager specialising in Chinese equities.

The fund is utilising a Cayman structure to trade A-shares through China-Hong Kong Stock Connect, a cross-border access scheme that has been available since 2014 and covers roughly 1,500 A-share stocks. The fund is MegaTrust’s  first China A-share equity fund for foreign investors.
