The China CleanTech Index outperformed all of its four benchmarks for the month of March 2015 and recorded a huge gain of 16.2%.

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.
