This ETF offers exposure to small cap Chinese stocks, an asset class that is generally overlooked, even by investors with significant exposure to Chinese equity markets. The majority of China-specific funds and emerging markets ETFs are dominated by mega cap stocks, and often exhibit a significant tilt towards the energy and financial sectors. ECNS does not share those biases, making this fund a potential complement or alternative to large cap-heavy ETFs; ECNS can be partnered with FXI or GXC to deliver more complete and well-rounded China exposure. Because small cap companies depend more heavily on local consumption than their large cap counterparts, these stocks are often a better "pure play" on the local economy. With about 300 holdings and only 10% of total holdings in the top ten securities, ECNS receives high marks for diversification. This fund is also relatively cheap considering the nature of the exposure, coming in right in line with the category average. HAO is another option delivering similar exposure, while YAO focuses on Chinese stocks across all market capitalizations.
