Hang Seng Indexes launches China State-holding Enterprises Index and expands Currency Hedged Index Series


Hang Seng Indexes Company Limited has launched a China State-holding enterprises themed index and added two indexes to the Hang Seng Currency Hedged Index Series. 

This index aims to reflect performance of Hong Kong-listed enterprises that have Chinese government entities as their largest shareholder. Constituents are selected using a multi- factor approach that takes financial quality, dividend yield and price volatility into consideration. The index uses an adjusted free-float market-capitalisation-weighted methodology to avoid an overconcentration on large-cap stocks
The two new currency hedged series indexes are the HSI EUR Daily Hedged Index and HSCEI EUR Daily Hedged Index, which are designed to allow investors to daily hedge against Hong Kong dollar exposure when using Euro to invest in the Hang Seng Index and the Hang Seng China Enterprises Index respectively. With the addition of these two indexes, the Hang Seng Currency Hedged Index Series now includes 12 indexes. 

The Hang Seng China State-holding Enterprises Index is calculated and disseminated in real-time at two-second intervals. The HSI EUR Daily Hedged Index and the HSCEI EUR Daily Hedged Index are calculated and disseminated once a day after trading hours on each trading day of the underlying indexes. More details about the new indexes are provided in the appendices that accompany this release.
