Chinese investors to increase ETF allocations in 2019


Almost two-thirds (63 per cent) of Greater China ETF investors are planning to increase their ETF investment allocations in the next year, according to Brown Brothers Harriman & Co’s (BBH) second annual survey of Chinese ETF investors.

When looking solely at Mainland China rarther than Greater China, that number jumps to 77 per cent from 43 per ce in BBH’s 2018 survey. 
The Greater China findings are a subset of a larger global ETF investor survey that measured the expectations and preferences of 300 institutional investors, financial advisers, and fund managers from the US, Europe, and Greater China. Some 100 respondents represented Greater China including Mainland China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. The survey provides insights into the current and future use of ETFs in Greater China’s rapidly expanding and evolving markets.
“These findings highlight the unique investor preferences and differing stages of ETF use across Greater China. ETFs are becoming an increasingly important component of institutional investors’ portfolios across the region,” says Chris Pigott, Senior Vice President, BBH Hong Kong. “Looking forward, regulatory development and enhanced ETF market infrastructure are areas of focus that will provide the foundation to support the expected growth.”
