Dear Friends,

We’re thrilled to announce that Mark Schlarbaum, Managing Partner at Krane Funds Advisors, LLC (KFA), is the newest supporter of the 100,000 Strong Foundation.  Schlarbaum will lend valuable insight into Chinese investment, financial markets and US-China business opportunities.

“Through my work with KFA, and my travels to China, I realized there are enormous investment opportunities that exist between our two countries,” Schlarbaum said. “We need organizations like the 100,000 Strong Foundation to ensure there is mutual understanding well into the future as we become increasingly more economically interdependent.”

Schlarbaum was drawn to 100,000 Strong through his role at KFA, an investment advisory firm that primarily provides advice on China-focused investment opportunities. He has traveled to China multiple times and developed an expertise in both the onshore and offshore Chinese financial markets.

We’re honored to have the support of Schlarbaum and KFA, and to work toward shaping a more constructive future for US-China relations. Schlarbaum and KFA’s connection between expanding Mandarin language learning in America and promoting investment in China speaks to their long-term commitment to being a leading provider of China-focused investment products in the US.

Thanks, as always, for your support.
