New Deutsche ETF to track 300 China A shares
by Robert St George on Jan 06, 2014 at 13:08
Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management has launched an exchange-traded fund (ETF) that will track the CSI300 index of China’s 300 largest and most liquid A shares.
Scheduled to list on the London Stock Exchange and the Deutsche Börse on 16 January, the ETF will be the first Ucits-compliant direct replication China A shares fund to mirror that wide index, which consists of companies listed onshore in China and traded in renminbi rather than those registered in Hong Kong.
In November, Deutsche released an equivalent ETF in the US, which has already attracted around £125 million in assets.
