Performance for the highly popular KraneShares CSI China Internet ETF (KWEB) has been rough.
 
The $5.6 billion ETF is down 38% over the past five years, as slowing growth and geopolitical issues weigh on Chinese stocks.

In this episode of Talk ETFs, etf.com Senior Analyst Sumit Roy sits down with Jonathan Shelon, Chief Operating Officer at KraneShares, to discuss KWEB and more of their China ETFs.

Valuations for Chinese stocks are at rock bottom levels, which has some investors believing that they are a bargain and will surge from here. Others aren’t so sure.

But what if you could invest in China without worrying about whether Chinese stocks will keep tumbling or not?

That’s what a pair of new ETFs from KraneShares helps investors do.

The KraneShares 100% KWEB Defined Outcome January 2026 ETF (KPRO) and the KraneShares 90% KWEB Defined Outcome January 2026 ETF (KBUF) are new buffer funds that invest in Chinese stocks, while protecting investors against upwards of 100% of the downside risk.
 
Shelon explains how these ETFs work and also discusses his company’s new covered call China ETFs.
