Nikko Asset Management Wins Best Asia Pacific Equity ETF Manager Award


Nikko Asset Management has been voted as the Best Asia Pacific Equity ETF Manager for the sixth time in seven years in a survey conducted by etfexpress.

Nikko Asset Management has been the most consistent winner in any category, with more than 1,600 subscribers of etfexpress taking part in the survey. The firm’s ETF assets sharply rose to USD26.1 billion, with inflows of USD7.1 billion in 2015.
“We’ve seen a year of significant interest in our ETF products and strong inflows,” says Geoffrey Post, Head of International Product Development at Nikko Asset Management Europe. “ In 2016 we will continue to expand our ETF offerings as investor demand for exposure to Asia grows.”
In December the company launched its new smart beta product on the Tokyo Stock Exchange, the Listed Index Fund MSCI Japan High Dividend Low Volatility ETF. The ETF is linked to a customised MSCI index designed to deliver high dividends at lower rates of volatility.
“As requirements from institutional and retail investors become increasing sophisticated, we have broadened – and will continue to expand – our ETF line-up to meet their needs,” says Koei Imai, Head of the ETF Centre at Nikko Asset Management. “This new ETF has been popular with institutional investors that are rotating out of low yielding sovereign bonds in search of yield.”
