db X-trackers lists China sector ETFs in Frankfurt
Deutsche Bank’s exchange-traded funds platform, db X-trackers, is providing European investors with exposure to specific sectors of the Chinese equity market with the listing of five new products on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.
The ETFs provide exposure to sectoral components of the CSI300 Index, which reflects the performance of China’s A-shares market. Sector exposures available are: energy, healthcare, consumer discretionary, banks and real estate.
Manooj Mistry (pictured), Deutsche Bank’s head of exchange-traded products, EMEA, says: “db X-trackers has played a key part in opening up China’s A-shares market to foreign investors, first with the listing of a series of A-shares ETFs in Hong Kong, then with the cross-listing last year to London of the db x-trackers CSI 300 Ucits ETF, and now with the cross-listing from Hong Kong to Frankfurt of specific sector ETFs on the CSI 300. This will make it much easier for European investors to trade Chinese equity exposure.”
The CSI300 Index tracks the performance of the 300 most representative – as measured by a combination of market capitalisation and liquidity – A-shares listed on the Shanghai and Shenzhen stock exchanges. The db x-trackers CSI 300 Ucits ETF now has close to GBP500m in assets under management, making it one of the most successful European-listed trackers of China’s A-shares equity market.
“China, and emerging markets in general, continue to be popular with investors. Our aim is to offer a wide choice of products that provide efficient market exposure, which is why we now offer more than sixty emerging markets products,” says Mistry.
