ArrowShares Plans Actively Managed Funds, KraneShares Files For China ETFs

by on May 24, 2013 | ETFs Mentioned:

At the beginning of a hectic week in the market, ETF issuers ArrowShares and KraneShares both filed paperwork with the SEC, looking to introduce some new funds into their small portfolios. While ArrowShares is looking to replicate the success of its first fund, (GYLD, B-) through three new active ETFs, KraneShares is bringing its extensive knowledge of Chinese investing to the U.S. marketplace [see ETF Database Launch Center].

ArrowShares is looking to grow its portfolio with new actively managed ETFs, which are detailed in its SEC filing.

  • The Arrow Balanced ETF: As the name describes, this fund will seek a balanced portfolio of both fixed income securities, equities, and alternative assets both domestic and international [also check out the Visual History Of The Dow Jones Industrial Average].
  • The Arrow Tactical ETF: Much like the Balanced ETF, this new fund will also explore all investment options, but will decide its weightings based on a thorough technical analysis of market activity, trading volume, and historical pricing.
  • The Arrow Tactical Yield ETF: This portfolio of global high yielding or junk ETFs is another spin on the balanced portfolio perspective ArrowShares is focusing on.

Newcomer to the U.S. ETF market, KraneShares is looking for another outlet for its Chinese investment expertise through two new funds.

  • CSI 300 China A Share ETF and MSCIA China A Share ETF: Using two different indexes, these two new funds both seek expsosure to the China A Shares market – funds from mainland China that trade on the Shezhan or Shanghai stock exchanges. These shares paint a more realistic picture of the emerging Chinese economy by avoiding the over crowded and developed Hong Kong market space.
