First Shanghai 180 China A-share leveraged & inversed ETFs debut on TWSE


The Taiwan Stock Exchange (TWSE) this week welcomed the Fubon SSE180 Leveraged 2x Index ETF and Fubon SSE180 Inversed Index ETF have begun trading on the Taiwan Stock Exchange (TWSE).

They are the the first leveraged and inverse Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) tracking the Shanghai Stock Exchange 180 Index available globally,

In the first four days of trading the ETFs together accounted for over 16.3% of the total daily ETF turnover, reflecting strong demand for innovative products.
These new ETFs have broadened the investment choices available in Taiwan and offer investors more flexibility in gaining exposure to the Mainland market. TWSE currently has seven ETFs which track benchmark indices for Mainland China markets. The SSE 180 Index is one of main benchmarks for the A-share market, which covers 67% of the market capitalisation of Shanghai listed stock, including many A-shares that qualify for the Shanghai-Hong Kong Connect program.
Unlike traditional channels used to gain exposure to the Mainland A-share market, Taiwan-based investors will no longer face currency or remittance issues, nor be subject to margin calls or expiration conditions related to trading index derivatives.
TWSE will continue to work closely with both domestic and offshore issuers to facilitate the timely introduction of more alternative financial products in order to attract more liquidity and investors to the Taiwan market.
Lee Sush-der, Chairman of TWSE, says: “Following our first leveraged ETFs launch in October, we are delighted to be adding more leveraged and inverse ETFs to our platform, as well as more links with the Mainland China markets. The added convenience and flexibility will benefit investors and aligns with the internationalisation of Taiwan capital market”.
