China and Emerging Countries: 

Direct Access to their Stock Markets 

We regret to inform you that due to Blackrocks latest precautionary travel restrictions around the Covid-19 outbreak, Henry Shen will no longer be able to travel to Canada on March 25th. We hope we’ll be able to reschedule it soon. Thank you for your understanding.

Join us to discuss:

  • Tackling the fastest growing segment of global equity markets
