Analyst Report

The Xtrackers MSCI China A Inclusion Equity ETF (ASHX) follows an index that offers exposure to stocks listed in mainland Chinese markets in Shenzhen and Shanghai, known as A-shares, that are being added to MSCI’s popular global indexes. In 2018, index giant MSCI began phasing in the addition of A-shares to its emerging markets indexes, prompting money managers who gauge performance against the MSCI benchmark to follow suit. MSCI plans to ratchet up A-shares inclusion over time, which could unleash billions of dollars of new investment into the A-shares market, potentially driving up demand and share prices. ASHX is a good tool for tactical traders who want to play that index arbitrage. It has a lower management fee than the comparable iShares MSCI China A ETF (CNYA) but lags in raising assets.

It’s important for investors to note that all A-shares only funds miss out on a substantial chunk of China stocks, such as those listed in Hong Kong. ASHX is even more narrowly focused and isn’t a good choice for those looking for broad exposure to China’s economy. For that, we’d recommend the iShares MSCI China ETF (MCHI), the dominant China-focused ETF, or the Xtrackers MSCI All China Equity Fund (CN).
