ASHS vs. ETF Alternatives

Now, those restrictions are easing and investors willing to accept the risks associated with investing in China can access the growth potential of one of the world’s fastest-growing economies — with db X-trackers Harvest CSI 500 China A-Shares Small Cap Fund (ASHS), the first exchange-traded fund to offer U.S. investors direct access to small-cap China A-share equities. The db X-trackers Harvest CSI 500 China A-Shares Small Cap Fund seeks investment results that correspond generally to the performance, before fees and expenses, of the China Securities 500 Index (CSI 500 Index). The index aims to track 500 small cap companies listed on the Shanghai and Shenzhen stock exchanges.
