DeAWM provides first ETF to provide broad access to Chinese equity market


Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management (DeAWM) has launched the db X-trackers Harvest MSCI All China Equity Fund the first US-listed ETF to provide investors with broad exposure to onshore and offshore Chinese equities. 

Offering the most complete opportunity set of any Chinese equity ETF on the market, CN will offer direct access to China A-shares in addition to China B-shares, China H-shares, China Red Chips, China P-Chips, China ADRs, and securities of Chinese companies listed in the US and Singapore.

“Deutsche Bank’s strong relationships across Asia are key building blocks for our Americas business,” says Jerry W. Miller, Head of Asset & Wealth Management Americas. “We remain committed to offering our clients extensive access to previously untapped markets through a wide range of exchange-traded products.”

CN is DeAWM’s second ETF to provide US investors with access to Chinese securities. In November 2013, DeAWM collaborated with Harvest Global Investments Limited to launch db X-trackers Harvest CSI 300 China A-Shares Fund (NYSE ticker: ASHR), becoming the first US ETF issuer to bring investors direct access to A-Share securities–Chinese companies that trade in mainland China.

“The launch of CN now provides investors with the most comprehensive exposure to China by investing across the spectrum of Chinese securities. This innovative product showcases Deutsche Bank’s ability to build upon our recent successes while leveraging our unique global capabilities,” says Fiona Bassett, Head of Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management’s Passive business in the Americas.

CN will seek to track the MSCI All China Index, which captures large- and mid-cap Chinese securities listed in China and Hong Kong, as well as in the US and Singapore, and which currently has 612 constituents.

“We are proud to be further expanding our relationship with MSCI, the leading provider of benchmark indices in the international equity space,” says Martin Kremenstein, US Head of ETPs for Deutsche Asset and Wealth Management.
