HSBC launches four Asian country ETFs


HSBC has launched four European ETFs offering exposure to the Indonesian, Korean, Malaysian and Taiwanese equity markets.

The HSBC MSCI Korea ETF lists on the London Stock Exchange today, and follows the launch of the HSBC MSCI Indonesia, HSBC MSCI Malaysia and HSBC MSCI Taiwan ETFs, all of which went live on 30 March. All carry a highly competitive Total Expense Ratio (TER) of just 0.60%. Further registrations and cross-listings across Europe are planned.

Farley Thomas, Head of ETFs at HSBC, says: “The launch of these four ETFs is consistent with our aim of offering a high quality range of ETFs tracking the main emerging markets. Investors in Europe have historically had access to Indonesia and Malaysia through swap-based ETFs and there is generally a limited choice available for investors seeking access to all four of these Asian markets. Now we are offering good value, physical ETFs tracking these markets."

As with all HSBC ETFs launched to date, the new ETFs will use ‘physical replication’ to track their respective indices and will aim to invest in securities in generally the same proportions as in the relevant index. The new ETFs complement existing Asian equity ETFs from HSBC tracking the MSCI China, MSCI EM Far East, MSCI Pacific ex Japan and MSCI Japan indices.
