The ETF industry is one of the great success stories of recent years. With a five-fold increase in assets under management over the past decade. Impressive as this growth is, it has been heavily slanted towards the US and Europe.

The rise of ETFs is in many ways a marker for the shift from active to passive management. As this white paper reports, passively managed assets across Asia are expected to treble over the next five years. Can Hong Kong capitalise on the surge in demand for ETFs these forecasts imply? Can it attract the big, high-volume products many investors rely on for broad-based asset allocation strategies?

In this white paper we look at the potential impact of the changes initiated by the Hong Kong stakeholders and ask what more needs to be done if Hong Kong is to fulfil its ambition to be Asia’s predominant trading hub in this asset class.
