FTSE China ETFs reach $20 billion

FTSE Group says $21.8 billion (€16.3 billion) now track its China indices in exchange traded funds (ETFs).

The figure includes $5 billion in the Hong Kong-listed CSOP FTSE China A-50 ETF and $8 billion in the iShares FTSE A50 China Index ETF.

FTSE, which recently launched the FTSE Global R/QFII Index Series that lets investors include China A-shares in global indices, says more than half of all non-China domiciled global ETF assets are invested in China-linked FTSE benchmarks, mainly in the FTSE China 25 Index and FTSE China A50 Index.

In January, CSOP – China’s largest global manager of mainland China equities for approved foreign investors – partnered with Source to launch the first ETF in Europe to offer physical exposure to China’s domestic equities market, the London-listed CSOP Source FTSE China A-50 ETF.

China A-shares are not currently included in FTSE’s standard global benchmarks. The region has been on FTSE’s Watch List since 2005. FTSE holds its annual country classification review every September.
