Our Future ETF Market (Part 1)

The number of Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) in Hong Kong is roughly ten times more than five years ago, but the market remains much smaller than the U.S. one, which has more than 1,100 ETFs available for sale nowadays. ETFs are no stranger to Hong Kong investors, as the debut of the first ETF in Hong Kong – Tracker Fund of Hong Kong (2800.HK), a well-known index tracker ETF mimicking Heng Seng Index – can date back to late 1999. That said, the ETF market’s development had been surprisingly slow until 2007, despite its decade-long history in Hong Kong

The merits of ETFs are nowadays on everyone’s lip. Driven by the strong market demand, more and more ETFs have rushed to the market. However, the development thus far is not healthy, especially when we compare the Hong Kong ETF market with the Singapore one.
