China & Environment Provides Strong Investment Thesis
The combined investment themes of China and environment provide a compelling case for investment. The sector remains volatile as it matures and reacts to environmental and industry development policy shifts. The quality and scale of the companies included in the sector varies widely and strong research into both sub-sectors and companies is essential before committing to the sector. However, the cleantech sector in China presents a very strong medium term investment thesis and the China CleanTech Index provides the first level of data to enable informed investment decisions to be made.
