This ETF offers an option for accessing companies that are listed on U.S. exchanges but derive a substantial portion of their revenues from China. As such, it may be a unique tool for accessing Chinese equity markets while mitigating some of the risk that comes with emerging markets (e.g., less stringent accounting standards, etc.). Unlike some China ETFs, PGJ does a pretty good job of spreading exposure throughout the economy; weightings to banks and energy aren't overwhelming, and the often-overlooked tech sector receives a significant weighting as well. PGJ is tilted towards mega cap companies, but does include some degree of exposure to smaller Chinese firms as well. And this ETF casts a wide net, investing in more than 200 names (though ten of those account for about half of total assets). PGJ has the potential to deliver more balanced China exposure than funds like FXI; other options for similar exposure may include GXC.
The adjacent table gives investors an individual Realtime Rating for PGJ on several different metrics, including liquidity, expenses, performance, volatility, dividend, concentration of holdings in addition to an overall rating. The "A+ Metric Rated ETF" field, available to ETFdb Pro members, shows the ETF in the China Equities with the highest Metric Realtime Rating for each individual field.
