S&P Dow Jones expands Chinese equity index offering

The S&P Total China BMI index series includes both A-shares and off-shore listings in one set of indices.

An extension to the S&P Global BMI family, the five indices are designed to allow global investors to analyse the Chinese equity market in a robust and efficient manner by including both A-shares and off-shore listings in one set of indices.

The indices, which are suitable as benchmarks for actively managed funds or as underlyings for index-linked investment products, such as exchange-traded funds (ETFs), include:

S&P China A BMI: A broad market index representing large-, mid-, and small-cap China A-shares

S&P China A+B BMI: A broad market index representing large-, mid-, and small-cap China A- and B-shares

S&P Total China BMI: Combining the S&P China A BMI and S&P China BMI (an index covering all Chinese equities accessible to foreign investors, except the A-shares), this index represents the entire investable universe of Chinese companies, including A-, B- and H-shares, Red Chips and P Chips, as well as Chinese securities listed in the U.S., Singapore and other global exchange venues

S&P Total China BMI + Hong Kong BMI: Representing the entire investable universe of Chinese and Hong Kong-based companies by combining the S&P Total China BMI and S&P Hong Kong BMI

S&P Total Greater China BMI: Representing the full universe of stocks from the Greater China region by combining the S&P Total China BMI, S&P Hong Kong BMI and S&P Taiwan BMI

Michael Orzano, Associate Director of Global Equity Indices at S&P Dow Jones Indices, said: “As China further opens its stock market to foreign investment, A-shares are garnering increased attention from global investors looking to diversify their portfolios. This trend is making Chinese equity benchmarks that include both domestic and off-shore listings more relevant to investors around the world.”

S&P Dow Jones Indices said the new indices underline the index provider’s commitment to Greater China and to facilitate global investors’ access to equity market intelligence in the region.
