  • ETF, or exchange-traded fund is a collective investment scheme that invests in a basket of investment instruments (such as stocks, bonds, commodities, or other securities) to mirror the performance of the index that it tracks.
  • ETFs are unique as they can be traded like a common stock on the stock exchange - and also experience price changes throughout the trading day as they are bought and sold.
  • In this case, the TradePlus S&P New China Tracker mirrors the performance of the S&P New China Sectors Ex A-Shares Index; which constitutes Chinese listed companies within the consumption and service-oriented industries.
  • Passive vs. Active
    • ETFs are typically passively managed where its objective is to closely track the performance of its benchmark or its referenced index, irrespective of the outlook on the market.
    • On the other hand, Unit Trust Funds (“UTF”) are typically actively managed, where the Manager has the flexibility to shift away from its optimal asset allocation depending on the Manager’s outlook of the market.
  • Higher trading frequency
    • ETF units are traded on the stock exchange, providing investors with the opportunity to transact units at any point throughout the trading day.
    • This defers from the subscription and redemption of units within a UTF, which can only be done once a day at a specific time.
  • Low-cost investment
    • Given its passive investment style, ETFs typically have a lower cost as compared to UTFs.
    • Management fees for a typical actively managed UTF ranges from 1.00-2.00% per annum, depending on the investment asset class.
    • The passively managed ETF typically charges below 1.00% in Management fees per annum.
    • ETFs are also traded on Bursa Securities and allows investors to invest based on “number of units” as opposed to the “investment amount” used for UTFs. The current board lot size at Bursa Securities is 100 Units, whereas a typical UTF would require a minimum investment amount of MYR1,000.
  • The Fund appoints Market Makers, whose role includes ensuring liquidity for the ETF on the secondary market.
  • The Market Makers provide buy and sell quotes within a predefined spread (the difference between the buy and sell price).
  • Through its inventory, the Market Maker is also able to ensure, to the best of their ability, that there is a buyer for every sell order, and a seller for every buy order.


  • Since the 1970s, China has been liberalising its economy through various government reforms and policies, which has successfully led to its transformation to become the world’s second-largest economy today.
  • But China’s transformation is far from over. The New China marks the nation’s latest economic transition – where its investment- and export-driven economy has now shifted to become one that is reliant on domestic consumption and services.
  • The New China Economy is also a reflection of the Chinese government’s bid to identify and shape more sustainable forms of growth for its economy.
  • An opportunity to capitalise on:
    • China’s higher GDP contribution – which is seen stemming from the service, and consumption industry.
    • China’s rising income pattern – which is anchoring the shift in consumption trends.
    • China’s increased internet penetration – which is encouraging a boom in the e-commerce industry.
  • Sectors we see benefitting from this trend include: Consumer staples, Automobiles, Tourism, Insurance, Education, Healthcare, E-commerce, and Internet Services.


  • The TradePlus S&P New China Tracker (“Fund”) is an exchange-traded fund that provide investors exposure to Chinese listed companies within the consumption and service-oriented industries.
  • The Fund aims to provide investors with a performance that closely mirrors its benchmark, which is the S&P New China Sectors Ex A-Shares Index.
  • Through its ETF structure, units of the Fund can be traded on Bursa Malaysia Securities.
  • Investors would also be able to create / redeem units at a minimum creation / redemption basket of 500,000 units.
  • The Fund is a passively managed fund, and does not aim to provide an outperformance against its benchmark.
  • Instead, the Fund will aim to perform in-line with its benchmark.
  • The Fund would be fully invested into its underlying assets at all times, irrespective of the Manager’s outlook on the market.
  • The Fund will look to carry out a full replication strategy to track the performance of its benchmark – the S&P New China Sectors Ex A-Shares Index.
  • As such, the price of the Fund will move in line with the price of its benchmark given the similar underlying of the two.
  • The Manager does, however, hold the option to invest up to a maximum of 20% of the Fund’s NAV into instruments that will enable the Fund to obtain a similar exposure to the benchmark if it is not able to gain the same exposure through the equity market.
  • Fees that would be incurred by the Fund include annual management fee, annual trustee fee, and quarterly licensing fee. Click here for more details.
  • All fees are reflected on a per-annum basis, and calculated on a daily basis. The fees will be reflected in the NAV per Unit as publicly available.
  • The investment amount will be dependent on prevailing unit price and number of shares purchased.
  • Trading on Bursa Malaysia Securities will be based on a minimum of 100 units traded – transacted in either US Dollar or Malaysian Ringgit.
  • Subscription via the primary market can be done through the Participating Dealer(s); where creation / redemption of units will be carried out with a minimum block size of 500,000 units – transacted in Hong Kong Dollar.
  • The Participating Dealer assists with the facilitation of creation and redemption of Units by the investors for the Fund.
  • Investors are required to liaise with the Participating Dealer(s) for all creation and redemption transactions.
  • You may refer to the latest list of Participating Dealer(s) of the TradePlus S&P New China Tracker here.
