HSBC launches MSCI AC Far East ex-Japan UCITS ETF in Europe

Fri, 27/09/2013 - 12:09

HSBC has launched the HSBC MSCI AC Far East Ex Japan UCITS ETF, offering full physical (optimised) replication and a total expense ratio (TER) of 0.60 per cent.

 
The new ETF replicates the performance of the MSCI AC Far East Ex Japan Index, a market cap weighted index that tracks the performance of large and mid cap companies across both emerging and developed Asia.   
 
Phil Reid, head of EMEA ETF distribution at HSBC Global Asset Management, says: “The MSCI AC Far East Ex Japan index is an important index providing diversified exposure to the potential growth areas of China (as accessible by the Hong Kong market), Hong Kong, Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan and Thailand. HSBC already offers physical exposure to the Asian markets through other ETFs in its range. This recent launch meets client demand and further expands the available choice for investors seeking exposure to these important markets.” 
 
Domiciled in Ireland, the HSBC MSCI AC Far East Ex Japan UCITS ETF is listed on the London Stock Exchange and Deutsche Börse and will be available in GBP, EUR and USD trading lines. Like HSBC’s full ETF range, it will be registered in several European countries, including UK, France, Germany, Ireland, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden and Austria. 
 
Meanwhile, HSBC is expanding its range of ETFs available in Germany by listing a further 15 emerging and developed market ETFs on the Deutsche Börse.
