Hong Kong approves Deutsche Bank synthetic ETFs


Six Deutsche Bank synthetic exchange-traded funds (ETFs) have been approved by the Hong Kong Securities and Futures Commission (SFC), the first such products to be allowed by the regulator since July 2010.

The products, which according to the SFC’s website were authorised on 30 December, and are part of Deutsche Bank’s db X-trackers series of ETFs, are the MSCI China TRN Index ETF, the MSCI India TRN Index ETF, the MSCI Indonesia TRN Index ETF, the MSCI Malaysia TRN Index ETF, the MSCI Thailand TRN Index ETF, and the Australian Dollar Cash ETF.

The last synthetic ETF approved by the SFC was iShares Asia Trust, and the last it authorised for Deutsche Bank was back in March 2010, according to the regulator’s website.
