Ping An MSCI China Multi-Factor ETF tracks the MSCI China Diversified Multiple-Factor Index, which comprises of large and mid-cap stocks of Chinese enterprises with desired characteristics - value, momentum, quality and low size. The index has historically demonstrated long-term risk-adjusted outperformance.

"Factor based investing can provide investors with relatively transparent and cost-efficient way to construct a return and risk optimized portfolio in a systematic fashion, allowing investors to achieve diversification benefits and better risk-adjusted returns than traditional market cap-weighted indexes."

Fundamentally, smart beta seeks to improve returns, reduce risk and increase diversification while delivering greater exposure to the market." said Mona Chung, Head of ETF and Cross Asset Investment at Ping An.

"Following the inclusion of China A-shares into the MSCI Emerging Markets Index, investors' interest in China has significantly increased. We are happy to be working with Ping An to respond to the growing demand for ETFs accessing this market- their efforts align with trends we are seeing more broadly from investors who want to invest in China." said Theodore Niggli, Managing Director and APAC Head of MSCI Index Business.
