Rakuten Securities has launched and commenced the marketing of six listed Chinese exchange-traded funds structured and developed by Deutsche Bank under its db x-trackers series to Japanese retail investors.
Rakuten Securities has provided US and Chinese equity products since 1999 and 2003 respectively, and has continued to expand its product line-up.
Among the international ETFs RSI has marketed since May 2007, it has continued to expand its product line-up of index funds tracking developed markets indices, such as the Dow 30 and S&P 500, to also include ETFs tracking emerging markets and commodities.
Rakuten Securities will launch six ETFs from the more than 120 funds in the db x-trackers line-up, tracking indices for China, India, Korea, Taiwan and Vietnam. The db x-trackers product is the only ETF offered in Japan tracking a Vietnam index.
With this addition of db x-trackers ETFs to its product line-up, Rakuten Securities will handle the largest number of foreign ETFs in Japan.
