BlackRock has now listed the iShares MSCI China A Ucits ETF on the London Stock Exchange (LSE), giving its international institutional and retail clients direct access to China’s A share equity market.

The iShares MSCI China A Ucits ETF provides investors with exposure to China A shares through BlackRock’s own Renminbi Qualified Foreign Institutional Investor (RQFII) quota. BlackRock has been awarded the RQFII licence in June last year.

The fund is a physical fund which purchases and holds the underlying stocks, it has a total expense ratio of 0.65%

Tom Fekete, head of Product for iShares in EMEA, comments: “Investor interest in China is high and shows no sign of abating. The world’s second largest economy is increasingly opening its stock market to greater foreign investment, and this ETF provides investors with a new option for accessing Chinese shares.”

“We selected the MSCI index very carefully for its diversified basket of A shares, and built the ETF using the physical replication model that investors tell us they prefer” he adds.
