HKEx welcomes its first ETF based on a CESC Index


The ChinaAMC CES China A80 Index Exchange Traded Fund, the first ETF based on an index from China Exchanges Services Company (CESC), has listed on the Hong Kong Exchange (HKEx).

CESC is the joint venture between HKEx and the Shanghai and Shenzhen stock exchanges. The CES China A80 Index is part of the China Cross Border Index Series developed by CESC.

The ChinaAMC CES China A80 Index ETF is the first CESC index product in HKEx’s securities market, the seventh Renminbi Qualified Foreign Institutional Investors (RQFII) ETF listed in Hong Kong and the seventh ETF available for trading and settlement in both renminbi (RMB) and Hong Kong dollars (HKD) at HKEx.  The stock codes of the ETF are 3180 (HKD) and 83180 (RMB).
There are now nine RMB-denominated ETFs on the exchange and the total number of listed ETFs has increased to 112, compared with 100 at the end of last year.
Average daily turnover of ETFs at HKEx in the first seven months of the year was up 160 per cent from the same period last year and the sector accounted for 6.5 per cent of securities market turnover between 1 January and 31 July, up from three per cent in the first seven months of last year. Three of the top four ETFs by turnover value and seven of the top 10, including the top two, were A-share ETFs. In addition, there were three HKD-traded counters and two RMB-traded counters of A-share ETFs in the top 10 ETF counters by turnover value.
"The launch of our first ETF on a CESC index is another milestone for us and CESC," says HKEx chief executive Charles Li.  "We launched CES China 120 Index futures, our first CESC index futures, about two weeks ago and hope to have more CESC products in our markets in the next several months. CESC opened for business in late October of last year and we are very proud of its many achievements in its first 10 months. Its success shows there are plenty of opportunities for us to work with Mainland exchanges in mutually beneficial ways."
