iShares has launched the iShares Asia ETF Series, including four new ETFs in Hong Kong.
The four ETFs, which began trading on the Stock Exchange of Hong Kong yesterday, provide access to market segments across Asia.
The range is based on MSCI indices, comprising the MSCI Asia APEX 50 Index, the MSCI Asia APEX Mid Cap Index, the MSCI Asia APEX Small Cap Index and the MSCI Emerging Asia Index.
The three APEX ETFs are designed to deliver diversified exposure to markets across Asia by investing in baskets of mid and small cap Asian companies.
The iShares MSCI Emerging Asia Index ETF tracks large and mid cap companies in emerging Asian countries such as South Korea, Taiwan, India, Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines.
iShares Asia Pacific CEO Nick Good comments: "Investors in Asia are seeking products with region-wide exposure while, at the same time, they want to know exactly what they have invested in and that their investments can be traded easily. These are the unique benefits shared by all iShares ETFs, including our four new products."
The latest range more than doubles iShares' offering in Hong Kong, which includes the iShares FTSE/Xinhua A50 China Tracker, the iShares MSCI China Tracker and the iShares BSE SENSEX India Tracker.
