london stock exchange welcomes hsbc global asset management celebrating the launch of the HSBC MSCI CHINA A INCLUSION UCITS ETF fund

London Stock Exchange has welcomed the listing of HSBC Global Asset Management's new MSCI China A Inclusion UCITS ETF. The ETF will track the performance of the MSCI China A Inclusion. This fund launch coincides with the second inclusion of China A into MSCIs global indices.

HSBCs latest ETF will give investors easy and quick access to invest in the Chinese mainland, through China A shares, which were traditionally only available to mainland Chinese citizens. This will provide investor's access to investment opportunities previously not available to offshore equity investors. The fund will include many 'new economy' sectors and other niche industries.

Joseph Molloy, Head of Index and Systematic Equity Portfolio Management, HSBC Global Asset Management, said:
"Foreign investors are now able to easily access mainland Chinese equities, providing exposure to the growth engine of the Chinese economy, or put simply, we are seeing 'China Unleashed'. This is an exciting opportunity with investor allocation and index weighting to Chinese equities typically underrepresented. 

The launch of this ETF further expands and complements our single emerging market country offering, providing efficient entry into some of the most difficult markets to replicate.

We are able to leverage HSBCs long standing heritage and strong expertise and footprint in China - with the widest and deepest presence in China among all foreign financial institutions- providing investors with a cost efficient ETF."

HSBC Global Asset Management was the winner of Pensions Age 2018 ‘Passive Manager of the Year’ Award, and the Best of the Best Awards Asia Asset Management for 2018.
