WisdomTree is betting that its latest exchange-traded fund, WisdomTree China Dividend ex-Financials ETF (CHXF), will satisfy investors’ appetite for Chinese dividend-paying stocks outside of the financial sector.
The fund has an expense ratio of 63 basis points.
Luciano Siracusano, WisdomTree’s chief investment strategist, stated: “The case for investing in China has become increasingly apparent to investors, but we believe some of the most popular China index-based strategies fail to offer diversified exposure. In fact, the FTSE China 25 Index – tracked by the biggest China ETF in the US – has more than 50% of its weight in the financial sector.”
“We have found that removing financials is an attractive tool for investors focusing on risk management in particular equity markets.”
