Asia Pacific ETF Market Trends

Equity ETFs Dominate the ETF Market

  • Equity ETFs (exchange-traded funds) in Asia-Pacific (APAC) represent a significant portion of the overall ETF market, offering investors exposure to diverse equity markets across the region. These ETFs track various indices, including regional benchmarks like the MSCI Asia-Pacific Index and country-specific or sector-specific indices. Japan, as one of the largest economies in the APAC region, hosts a considerable number of equity ETFs. For example, the iShares MSCI Japan ETF (EWJ) is one of the oldest and most popular ETFs tracking Japanese equities. It exposes investors to large and mid-cap Japanese companies across various sectors.
  • China, another key player in the APAC equity market, has seen rapid growth in its ETF ecosystem. ETFs tracking Chinese equities offer exposure to both mainland-listed A-shares and offshore-listed H-shares, providing investors access to the world's second-largest equity market. The Xtrackers Harvest CSI 300 China A-Shares ETF (ASHR) is an example of tracking the CSI 300 Index, which comprises the largest and most liquid A-shares listed on the Shanghai and Shenzhen stock exchanges.
  • Overall, equity ETFs in the APAC region offer investors a feasible and cost-effective way to access a diverse range of equity markets, catering to varying investment objectives and risk appetites.
