Rockefeller Asset Management and KraneShares announce partnership to launch ETFs 


Rockefeller Asset Management, the asset management arm of Rockefeller Capital Management, and KraneShares, an ETF provider specialising in China, climate, and uncorrelated assets, have announced a partnership to launch a suite of ETFs.

Rockefeller Asset Management writes that with over 30 years of global investing and shareholder engagement experience that seeks to generate alpha, the firm offers active equity, fixed income, and alternative solutions across fundamental, systematic, and thematic investment approaches. 

Rockefeller Asset Management’s entry into the ETF market with KraneShares follows the firm’s recent strategic partnerships in the long-only space with Nordea Asset Management and Credit Suisse. Its commitment to building strategic partnerships enables the firm to develop innovative and differentiated investment products and solutions for investors globally, the firm says.

KraneShares writes that it manages the largest and most liquid carbon allowance ETF listed on the New York Stock Exchange, and its current climate and impact-aligned ETF suite spans carbon credits, electrification metals, and transition equities.

“Rockefeller Asset Management is pleased to partner with KraneShares to provide innovative investment solutions featuring broad access to our institutional portfolio managers, distinctive intellectual capital, and award-winning research in combination with KraneShares’ proven track record of identifying and developing new asset categories for investors worldwide,” says Casey C. Clark, President and CIO of Rockefeller Asset Management. “We share KraneShares’ focus on delivering strong investment outcomes and creating long-term value for clients in a dynamic, competitive marketplace.”

“This partnership between Rockefeller Asset Management and KraneShares will allow us to provide innovative investment solutions,” says Jonathan Krane, CEO of KraneShares. “The Rockefeller heritage in sustainable and impact investing dates back to the 1970s, and we are delighted to collaborate with a pioneer in this space to deliver compelling strategies that incorporate a mission-aligned approach with a focus on outperformance.”
