Analyst Report

The Xtrackers Harvest CSI 500 China-A Shares Small Cap Fund (ASHS) offers exposure to small mainland-listed Chinese equities, a segment that’s often overlooked by China-specific funds, which tend to have a bias toward larger companies. The tilt toward bigger firms can overemphasize the financial and energy sectors. This fund can be paired with the Xtrackers Harvest CSI 300 China A-Shares ETF (ASHR), the first and largest U.S.-listed ETF to offer direct exposure to mainland-listed Chinese equities, called A-shares.


The A-share focus is what sets ASHS apart from the iShares MSCI China Small-Cap ETF, which excludes A-shares. Investors looking for small-cap China exposure might consider mixing ECNS and ASHS.
