Investing Opportunities in a Slower Growing China


  • Chinese economic policy is putting the brakes on its growth spurt.
  • Even with slower growth, China is still the largest single contributor to global growth.
  • China’s growing consumer class represents a compelling opportunity for investors.

China’s growth over the next decade is likely to be slower than it has been. However, contrary to what many investors may believe, the changing economic environment hasn’t ruined the investing case for China. It has, if anything, made a more compelling case for focusing on China’s growing consumer class.

To be sure, central bank tightening has hurt Chinese stock performance. Policy changes in China, and potential changes in the United States, have made investors nervous.

However, while China’s growth is slowing, it’s not stopping. In fact, China will likely continue to be the largest single contributor to world growth in the near term.

From an investing perspective, and in our opinion, a vibrant Chinese consumer class is very positive for suppliers of consumer goods and services whose capital intensity is relatively low.
