A. We have posted a blog about a list of China funds and ETFs that U.S. investors could explore, but given the recent huge swings of the China's A-share stock market, it's understandable that people are nervous. An article on July 30's Wall Street Journal pointed a few things investors in China ETFs should know about:
1. Most U.S. funds have little direct exposure to the A-share market in China.
2. Year to date performance is not too bad given the early in the year gains.
3. Longer term investors are doing well. The iShares China Large-cap has returned an average of 9.3% a year over the past 10 years.
4. There will be more A-share stocks to be included in China funds and ETFs.
5. Emerging markets should be just a small portion of your overall portfolio.
