Analyst Report

This ETF offers exposure to bonds traded in the Dim Sum bond market, which are denominated in the Chinese currency. As such, this ETF could be appealing for investors looking to establish exposure to the Chinese yuan, which is generally expected to appreciate in coming years as Beijing loosens control on its currency. DSUM can be used in a number of different ways, including as a diversification agent in long-term fixed income portfolios that tend to be dominated by debt of U.S.-based issuers. In certain environment, DSUM may offer a substantially greater yield than comparable debt denominated in the U.S. currency, while at the same time delivering some dollar diversification. In our opinion, most U.S. investor portfolios do not maintain an appropriate level of exposure to international debt markets; tools like such as DSUM have the potential to both lower overall risk and enhance bottom line yields realized from the fixed income portion of a portfolio. DSUM shouldn't be expected to turn in the same magnitude of returns delivered by investment in Chinese stocks; this ETF is much more likely to deliver steady gains than huge price appreciations. There are several aspects of the Dim Sum bond market and of DSUM that are noteworthy. First, the underlying portfolio isn't necessarily limited to Chinese issuers; Western corporations can and do issue debt in the Dim Sum market. Second, it should be noted that the Dim Sum bond market is not the same thing as the bond market that is available to local Chinese investors; DSUM is an innovative product that has opened up a potentially exciting asset class, but it doesn't quite put U.S. investors on the same footing as those in mainland China. Investors should also take a close look at the underlying portfolio of DSUM, as it may be somewhat shallow in nature and concentrated in a relatively small number of holdings. Investors seeking broad-based emerging markets bond exposure may prefer ELD, while those looking to developed and emerging Asian bonds have ALD as a tool. And there are other ETF options for Dim Sum bonds as well, including RMB and CHLC. Those products are generally similar; when comparing the options, investors should consider expenses, depth of holdings, and the balance of the underlying portfolio.
