Shanghai bourse mulls offering bond ETFs

The Shanghai Stock Exchange (SSE) is considering launching a series of exchange traded funds (ETFs) which invest in the country's bond market, the National Business Daily reported Tuesday, citing an insider from the exchange, a move which experts say will help ease the growing demand for fixed-income products among Chinese investors.

So far the exchange has not pushed forward any concrete measures regarding the new ETFs or set a time frame for their launch, a spokesperson from the exchange told the Global Times Tuesday.

While details are still forthcoming, last month the exchange gave its approval to Bosera Fund and Guotai AMC, two local investment fund management firms, to design ETFs that will invest in sovereign and corporate debt respectively, said Zhang Yongmin, an executive manager from Qilu Securities.

The launch of bond ETFs in China will be a huge boom to the growing number of retail investors who are eager to shed their equity investments and take positions in fixed-income products while the mainland stock market idles at three-year lows, Xu Weilin, an analyst from Z-Ben Advisors, a fund investment consultancy, told the Global Times.
