ETFs grow on Taiwan Stock Exchange


October has seen the ETF universe available on the Taiwan Stock Exchange expand with eight new ETFs, including the ‘Cathay DJIA ETF’ and ‘Cathay DJIA Inverse 1X ETF’. 

The two ETFs, issued by Cathay Securities Investment Trust Co, provide investors with flexible ways to track the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) Index, a price-weighted average of 30 significant stocks traded on the NYSE and the NASDAQ that include well known corporations such as Apple, Coca Cola, IBM, 3M, Disney and Visa, among others.
The other ETFs recently listed were:
    Fubon TAIEX Daily 2X Leveraged ETF (listed on 5 October)
    Fubon TAIEX Daily -1X Inverse ETF (listed on 5 October)
    Yuanta S&P GSCI Gold 1x Inverse ER Futures ETF (listed on 7 October)
    Yuanta S&P GSCI Crude Oil 2x Leveraged ER Futures ETF (listed on 7 October)
    Yuanta S&P GSCI Crude Oil 1x Inverse ER Futures ETF (listed on 7 October)
    Yuanta KOSPI 200 ETF (listed on 7 October)
Dr Jun-ji Shih, Chairman of the Taiwan Stock Exchange, (pictured) says: “The size of Taiwan’s ETF market has grown quickly over the past few years, especially after the introduction of leveraged and inverse products in 2014. In particular, we are pleased to see the addition of more ETF products tracking markets outside of Taiwan, which are proving particularly popular with investors and are helping further internationalize the Taiwan market.”
As of the 14th of October 2016, the total AUM of the Taiwan ETF market was NT$249.5 billion (USD7.92 billion), with an average trading of NT$7.29 billion (USD231 million), representing 9.10 per cent of total trading on the TWSE. There is now a total of 61 ETFs listed on the TWSE.
