A leading financial services organisation has announced the launch of an ETF fund in the Asian market.

Today, HSBC will launch its HSBC MSCI Japan ETF, which will allow investors to expose themselves to the total return performance of large and mid-cap Japanese equities.

Its Total Expense Ratio will be 0.40 per cent and it is to initially list it on the London Stock Exchange, although this will be expanded across Europe as a whole.

Farley Thomas, head of ETF funds at HSBC, described this sort of investment as a low-cost route compared to many other forms of investment.

He said: “In terms of demand, Japanese equity funds have seen over ten weeks of consecutive inflows, the strongest start to the year for the Japanese equity fund sector globally since 2006.”

Earlier this month, Gartmore Japan Absolute Return Fund manager John Stewart claimed that many Japanese firms are in line for an earnings recovery this year.
