    Book Club: Third Millennium Thinking: Creating Sense in a World of Nonsense Ch 1 - 11

    Jun 25, 05:00 PM - 06:00 PM (PT)

    Third Millennium Thinking is based on a UC Berkeley course focusing on how scientists’ tricks of the trade can be used to make the best decisions and solve the hardest problems in the current age of uncertainty and overwhelming information. The book discusses how people can achieve a ground-level understanding of the facts of the modern world, how to chart a course through a profusion of possibilities and how to work together to take on the challenges we face today. The authors lay out some questions to ask (ourselves and others), the ways to separate facts from opinions, how to distinguish reliable information from background noise, how to think in terms of probabilities instead of absolutes, and how to incorporate personal values. The book provides approaches that can be used to answer questions such as, "How do we make health decisions in the face of conflicting medical advice? Does the research cited in that article even show what the authors claim? How can we navigate the next Thanksgiving discussion with our in-laws, who follow completely different experts on the topic of climate change?".

    Unlocking China’s Potential: Innovative Strategies for Growth, Options Income, and Risk Management

    Jun 27, 01:00 PM - 02:00 PM (PT)

    China is the second-largest economy, with growth and broad innovation across industries. Meanwhile, the current China-US valuation disparity is at a record high. Fundamental analysis suggests an attractive entry point, yet volatility persists. How can investors keep their long-term exposures while turning current volatility into potential returns? The answer could lie in the depth of China’s options market, which has paved the way for tools such as covered calls and defined outcome strategies, generating options income and allowing investors to fine-tune their risk/reward profile.

    Join KraneShares CIO, Brendan Ahern, and KraneShares COO, Jonathan Shelon, as they discuss:

    The latest developments in China’s internet sector

    ·    KWEB’s volatility and its implications for investors compared to other global markets.

    ·    The risk/return benefits of applying covered call and other structured outcome strategies to KWEB

    ·    Comprehensive Q&A

    Investors can submit questions to [email protected] & bill.[email protected].
