  • CHINA FINANCIAL FUNDS ARE RIGHT ON TRACK 0 comments
    May 3, 2013 3:42 AM

    Atypical urge in most Americans to invest in China Financial Sector is justified for at least four of the Chinese banks are now among the global top ten banks when measured through their market values. The steep growth curve in the Sino financial equity is a long term idea but almost certain owing to a regulated economic framework and market friendly policies of the state government.

    For foreign investors, a China Financials ETF will suffice for more than just an urge, as the exposure enables a standardised vestment throughout the most liquid Chinese bank stocks and their respective ADRs [American Derivatives].

    The wide spectrum access to about thirty stocks or even more as in case of Global X China Financials also cuts down the standard risks that are associated with equity investment in China.

    The Jefferies equity strategy team expects China's domestic consumption to form a major portion of its GDP, estimated to touch more than 72.5 % by the year 2025. Last year it was calculated to be a little less than 50% of the total GDP.

    The same team has made another strong prediction stating that China and the United States will have almost same GDP growth rate by the year 2025.

    China Financials funds give a fair amount of liquidity to its investors and resolves all the other compliance issues otherwise involved with foreign investments in China.

    The Chinese economy exudes positivity not just for its billions of natives but also for its equity market. Last year figures show a decrease in inflation alongside the most needed increase in exports. Even domestic consumption of luxury items like cars has gone up, so have the circulation of bank loans. China has been increasingly importing commodities such as copper, aluminium and crude. All this indicates furthering growth in key sectors of the country.

    The governmental policies are aimed at strengthening its stock market, improving lifestyle and social security of its inhabitants and raise incomes and indigenous consumptions. Infrastructure is a main focus so as to accommodate the urbanisation trend.

    China's stock market seems to continue positively for the year 2013 and with the leadership open to newer policies and reforms, a stronger economy will unfold. China offers various funds including small cap funds and allows enough diversification opportunities to its investors.

    Along with a strong currency support, the oil and transportation sectors have drawn great revenues even for the investors. China is working on to raise investment in its banking and financial sectors. Also private financing is encouraged.

    International traders from the west and other international destinations are keen on profiting from the country's enormous overall growth prospects and may foreign companies have their operations / office in China.

    The financial sector is another progressive segment opened up to global players. The Financial Sector in China is mainly dominated by the commercial banks. One such big (state owned) bank is the Bank of China limited, offers services such as investment & commercial banking, insurance, fund and investment management to a diversified list of clients in China, Macau, Hong Kong and about 29 other nations.

    American interest in stocks and funds dealing with one or the other aspect of this nation are finding a place in their portfolios. To invest china financials sector, funds such as CHIX ETF provide traders and American players with an assortment of Chinese companies that would have otherwise been difficult to access by foreigners outside the (equity traded) fund. In addition to this ETFs offer fair amount of liquidity and successfully deal with risks and company specific concerns.

    Global X China Financials ETF [CHIX] is attuned to the Solactive China Financials Index and delivers as per the performance of the 36 top Chinese bank securities that the benchmark comprises of. Fund issuers charge annual fees of 0.65% on transactions. More than half of the assets for CHIX ETF are bank stocks and the rest is spread out through the real estate, insurance and financial services equity from China.
