LSE ETF listing first for new look China Post Global


China Post Global has listed the Market Access iSTOXX MUTB Japan Quality 150 Index UCITS ETF (MAJQ LN) on the London Stock Exchange (LSE).

The ETF is also listed on Germany’s Deutsche Börse and Switzerland’s SIX, but the firm writes that this is the first time China Post Global has listed a product on the London Stock Exchange since it acquired the Market Access range of ETFs from Royal Bank of Scotland in 2016.

The GBP listing in London provides an additional execution venue, further increasing accessibility and transparency for UK investors, the firm says.

“We are very pleased to be listing our Japan Quality ETF on the London Stock Exchange, in response to strong demand from UK-based investors seeking exposure to Japanese companies through this differentiated and innovative approach,” says Danny Dolan, Managing Director of China Post Global.

“A lot of interest has been generated since last year, which was excellent for investments in Japan, ending with the TOPIX index at a 26-year high, but we do suggest investors look closely at the Japanese market, as taking a more selective approach can pay off.”

The ETF aims to replicate the performance of the iSTOXX MUTB Japan Quality 150 Index (ISXMJQYN), which invests in companies with consistently high returns on equity, strong financial health and positive cash flows. In 2017 this index rose 25.7 per cent, compared to the broad-based TOPIX index which was up 21.8 per cent.

“We are delighted to welcome China Post Global as a new ETF issuer on London Stock Exchange today. Listing its innovative Market Access Japan Quality 150 Index UCITS ETF in London underlines the growing international investor appetite for exposure to Asian markets, as well as the City’s position as a leading centre for international finance. We look forward to continuing to work with China Post Global to bring new products to market and to deepen the strong economic ties between the UK and China,” says Lida Eslami, Head of ETP Business Development at London Stock Exchange Plc.

The Market Access iSTOXX MUTB Japan Quality 150 Index UCITS ETF is registered in UK, Austria, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Luxembourg and Switzerland.
