In terms of the nominal GDP, China is the second largest economy and it is also the world's most populous nation. Moreover, China is the world's largest trading power. In the recent years, China has started to attract more and more new investments. One of the easiest way to invest in Chinese market is through Exchange-Traded Funds. ETFs may focus on a specific index, sector (such as financials, technology or real estate) or a market cap (small, mid, or large). Investing through China ETFs provides exposure to the China’s markets and may be helpful to hedge some of the foreign risks. There are also some of the Chinese currency ETFs which exclusively focus on the Chinese Yuan. In addition, there are broad currency ETFs that not only follow Yuan but also other currencies. Generally, China is considered a good partner for western multinationals to trade goods and services. Due to the communist system, China may differ from U.S. and most European countries when regulations of public companies are concerned. Investor should be aware of the specificity of the political situation and remember about the risks tied with it, including volatility risk. Even though China has the fastest-growing economy and investing via Chinese ETFs may bring significant returns, investors should keep in mind all the risks.
