NEW YORK, April 12, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Krane Funds Advisors, LLC, ("KraneShares") announced the launch of the KraneShares MSCI Emerging Markets ex China Index ETF, which listed today on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE: KEMX). KraneShares is a U.S. asset management firm known for its China-focused exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and innovative China investment strategies.
KEMX is benchmarked to the MSCI Emerging Markets ex China Index, which tracks large cap and mid cap companies within emerging market countries, excluding China. This is KraneShares thirteenth U.S.-listed fund and third emerging market ETF. Rooted in the KraneShares thesis "China is an asset class," investors will be able to pair KEMX with other KraneShares China-focused core and thematic funds to make a strategic investment without duplicating exposure to China.
"Within emerging markets, KraneShares believes China is in a league of its own; an asset class unto itself distinguished by its market size and unparalleled growth," said Jonathan Krane, Chief Executive Officer of KraneShares. "We believe that incorporating a strategic China investment strategy that distinguishes China from the rest of EM may help to optimize EM performance as a whole. KEMX is a great tool to enable a completion strategy around China."

Investing involves risk, including possible loss of principal. There can be no assurance that a Fund will achieve its stated objectives.
Shares are bought and sold at market price (not NAV) and are not individually redeemed from the funds. Brokerage commissions will reduce returns.
The Fund is subject to industry concentration risk. The Fund may invest in derivatives, which are often more volatile than other investments and may magnify the Fund's gains or losses. Fluctuations in currency of foreign countries may have adverse effect to domestic currency values. Emerging markets involve heightened risk related to the same factors as well as increased volatility and lower trading volume. The Fund's investments are subject to liquidity risk, which exists when an investment is or becomes difficult to purchase or sell at a reasonable time and price.
