Journalist Charles Dow founded his famous index on May 26, 1896, with the intention of creating a “window” on the US stockmarket and the wider economy. Thus was born what would become the globally famed 30-stock Dow Jones Industrial.

In early 2017 a fund manager approached WiC with the idea that we create a 30-stock index of ‘blue chip’ A-shares drawn from the best of the locally listed companies in Shanghai and Shenzhen. The idea was that the group should mirror the Dow in its simplicity. Like the original Dow the choice of the constituents could draw on a journalistic selection process to screen the firms for ‘blue chip’ status.

It was a good idea and that’s exactly we did. Four years later how has it stacked up? Click here to read our article analysing the performance of our WiC30 A-Share Blue Chip Index and explaining how we created it.
