BlackRock launches new China bond ETF


In response to a growing appetite amongst investors for exposure to Chinese investment opportunities, BlackRock has launched the iShares China CNY Bond UCITS ETF, which offers exposure to China denominated investment-grade bonds issued by the Chinese treasury and policy banks.

Wei Li, head of iShares EMEA investment strategy, says: “When it comes to the immense structural opportunity in China, think 2-2-2. With the 2nd largest stock and bond markets and only 2% foreign ownership, China is expected to attract USD200 billion in flows from this year’s inclusion events. The launch of the iShares MSCI China UCITS ETF and the iShares China CNY Bond UCITS ETF provide easy access to investors to embrace this structural trend.”

Vasiliki Pachatouridi, head of iShares EMEA fixed income strategy, adds: “The investment case for China is clear – it boasts the second largest bond market in the world, its bond yields are higher and bond return correlations lower compared to major developed countries. The iShares China CNY Bond UCITS ETF provides a single access point to China onshore bonds, offering investors ease of access and operational efficiency.”

The news follows the recent launch of the iShares MSCI China UCITS ETF which offers investors exposure to approximately 85 pefr cent of the Chinese stock market, focused on large and mid-cap stocks.
