The March 2015 Quarterly Performance Report for the China CleanTech Index is now available - please click here to download the report.
The China CleanTech Index surged 16.2% gain over the month of March and is up 23.7% over the last quarter outperforming all of its benchmarks. This was driven by both strong gains across all Chinese stocks and the positive government sentiment towards environmental initiatives expressed at the National People's Congress.
The best performing sub-indices for the quarter were the 41.0% gain for the China Efficiency Index and the 39.1% gain for the China Storage Index. The worst result was recorded by the 9.2% gain from the China Hydro Index.
The market capitalisation of the 167 stocks in the China CleanTech Index is CNY 1.9 trillion (US$313 billion), up a long way from its trough of CNY 604 billion in November 2012.
