Thai Bourse to list Thai ETFs tracking MSCI Thailand Index


The Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) is to list the BCAP MSCI Thailand ETF (BMSCITH), an exchange-traded fund (ETFs) tracking constituents on MSCI Thailand ex Foreign Board Index, on 7 June, 2016. 

The fund is managed by Bangkok Capital Asset Management Co., Ltd., as the first ETF to be listed on SET this year.

SET President Kesara Manchusree, says: "BMSCITH will track performance of constituents on MSCI Thailand ex Foreign Board Index, with a combined market capitalisation accounting for 85 per cent of SET’s total market value. Most of these equities have a good track record of consistently paying dividends. Such product would help diversify investment portfolio to minimise risks, with small capital outlay required. The dividend payment will be reinvested in BMSCITH in proportion to the respective weightings of the constituents. Therefore, investors will get returns tracking closely corresponding to constituents on MSCI Thailand ex Foreign Board Index movements.”

Bualuang Securities pcl, a market maker and participant dealer, will provide liquidity via two-way continuous quote during the trading hours, as well as provide creation and redemption BMSCITH for at least 1 million units.
