Nine new Asia-Pacific ETPs launch in first month of 2011


Nine new product launches in the first four weeks of the year kicked 2011 off to a strong start. The same period in 2010 saw five launches.


Products related to China dominated the new offerings, with three ETPs listed in mainland China and three in Hong Kong SAR, while the remaining three were listed on the Korean Stock Exchange. The new products offer access to different return streams, including, agricultural futures, Chinese dividend income, “green returns”, and broad local markets. These new products increased the region’s ETP count to a total of 293, with 446 listings across 12 countries.

Since the start of the year turnover has been bound within 10% of last year’s weekly average value. Last week’s total ETP turnover was USD4.3bn versus USD4.8 bn in the previous week, representing a decrease of about 9% over the weekly turnover average in 2010. Among markets, Hong Kong made the top of the list with USD1.4bn traded throughout last week, accounting for 31.8% of the on-exchange Asian turnover.

Assets rose 1.2% to USD84bn versus USD83bn in the previous week. Year to date, assets have slightly shrunk by USD0.16bn, remaining at about the same level than 2010’s closing figure.
