Exchange traded fund market activity in Asia, as measured by turnover and new fund listings, increased substantially in the second half of February, according to the latest report from Deutsche Bank researchers Aram Flores and Shan Lan.

Japan has the largest market share by assets under management, accounting for 54.5 per cent of the Asian market as a whole, whilst China has the largest market share by turnover with 40 per cent.

Six new ETFs were listed during the final two weeks of February. Five were listed on the Singapore stock exchange, four by db x-trackers and one by DBS Asset Management. The remaining fund was listed on Japan’s Osaka stock exchange by Mitsubishi UFJ Asset Management.

Monthly average daily turnover rose 23 per cent over the two-week period from the previous fortnight to USD816m. The largest ETF by turnover was the China 50 ETF issued by China Asset Management with USD206m, accounting for 25 per cent of total turnover.

Assets under management have decreased since the second half of 2007, and the downward trend has continued in the first two months of 2009, and stood at USD40.2bn as of 2 March. The largest ETF by assets is the Topix ETF, managed by Nomura Asset Management, with USD5.9bn.
