Leveraging up on Chinese (mainland) shares....

    Seem to be putting in a bottom... Is there any to get leveraged exposure to mainland Chinese equities? I know there's the Hang Seng Index, but it's not a pure mainland play (the correlation seems to have broken down the past few months), then there's the mainland 'a' and 'b' shares, but no 'leverage' available as far as I'm aware, and being a non Chinese I'd only have exposure to b shares, or otherwise custody risks with the 'a' shares (probably not such a good idea).... So are there any other options?

    Very grateful for any ideas.

    Best regards,

    There are many mainland stocks listed in Hong Kong. If you're after leverage then many of these also have warrants.
