London Stock Exchange welcomes ETF Securities

 

London Stock Exchange welcomed ETF Securities, one of the world’s leading, independent providers of Exchange Traded Products (ETPs) to open trading in London this morning.

ETF Securities partnered with E Fund, one of China’s largest asset management companies, to launch Europe’s first physically replicated UCITS exchange traded fund (ETF) tracking the MSCI China  A Index. ETFS-E Fund MSCI China A GO UCITS ETF is listed on the London Stock Exchange as of today.

The MSCI China A Index has the broadest and most comprehensive A share stock coverage, with strong historical outperformance compared to other A share benchmarks. The index comprises over 460 Chinese stocks listed on the Shanghai or Shenzhen Stock Exchanges.

Matt Johnson, Head of Distribution EMEA, ETF Securities (UK) Limited: “Per capita wealth in China is expected to double over the next ten years, presenting huge opportunities for China’s companies. ETFS-E Fund MSCI China A GO UCITS ETF will offer European investors access to these opportunities." 

We are delighted to be working on this product with E Fund. As one of China’s top asset managers and currently the second largest RQFII quota holder, they have extensive experience in the industry, having previously launched China A share ETFs in Hong Kong”.
