Invesco introduces China All Shares ETF

ETF screenInvesco has launched its first ETF covering China’s All Shares market. The MSCI China All Shares Stock Connect Ucits ETF is designed to offer investors broader coverage of the country’s equities markets, including companies listed in Hong Kong, Shanghai, Shenzhen and outside of China. The fund will also focus on companies included in the Stock Connect programme which links the equities markets of Hong Kong and Shanghai and has helped foreign investors gain access to China’s onshore market. “Despite China being one of the largest and fastest-growing economies in the world, its capital markets have always been difficult for international investors to access,” said Gary Buxton, head of Emea ETFs and indexed strategies at Invesco. “There are many different types of share classes, some listed onshore and others offshore, and not all are available to everyone.” © 2021 funds global asia
