The TraHK Story

TraHK launched the local exchange-traded fund (ETF) industry in 1999. Today, it remains the largest and most actively traded locally-listed ETF, with more than HKD80 billion of assets under management1. Managed by State Street Global Advisors, TraHK provides a cost-efficient mean of gaining exposure to Hong Kong equities for a range of investors.

 

TraHK offers a number of potential benefits and could be your long-term investment partner:

Invest in Hong Kong‘s largest, most established listed companies

 

Tracking the Hang Seng Index, TraHK invests in 50 “blue chips” stocks, which represent a wide spread of Hong Kong’s largest, most established listed companies.

Easy Diversification

 

TraHK invests in all 50 constituent stocks of the Hang Seng Index, covering a range of industry sectors, thereby reducing risk and volatility compared to investing in individual stocks.

Cost Efficiency

 

With ongoing charges over a year at 0.09%*, TraHK is a cost-efficient way for investors to diversify their Hong Kong equity investments in just a single trade.

 

* The ongoing charges figure is based on expenses for the financial year ended 31 December 2018. This figure may vary from year to year. The ongoing charges figure is calculated by adding the applicable charges and payments deducted from the assets of TraHK and then dividing by TraHK’s average net asset value for the financial year.

Potential Dividends

 

(TraHK aims to pay dividends on a semi-annual basis. The dividend amount or dividend rate is not guaranteed.)

 

TraHK aims to pay dividends every six months, which can be a source of cash flow for investors if they don’t want to sell low when the markets go down. It also provides a regular stream of income for long-term investors, especially given today’s very low cash deposit interest rates.

How to Invest in TraHK

View Fund Factsheet (PDF)

1. Directly through your securities account

2. Through monthly stock investment programme

3. Through contributions to an MPF investing in TraHK

TraHK is flexible and easy to trade. Investors can buy and sell them like shares during Hong Kong trading hours, typically through a stock broker or a bank. The board lots size for TraHK is 500. Investors can also employ traditional share trading techniques including stop orders, limit orders and margin purchases (if available).

To begin investing in TraHK through a monthly stock investment program, please contact your bank or broker. There are two advantages of this strategy; firstly, it removes the guesswork and is relatively inexpensive as many banks or brokers offer this type of plan from as little as HK$1,000 per month; secondly, it also encourages discipline and regular saving.

 

By investing in an MPF that holds units in TraHK, you may benefit from the diversification that comes from investing in a wide range of Hong Kong-listed companies. It may also be a cost-effective option with TraHK’s relatively low management fees, which is particularly important as annual charges can make a big difference to your returns over time.

 

For more details, please contact your MPF provider.

The prospectus for TraHK is available and may be obtained from the Manager and downloaded from TraHK’s dedicated website: www.trahk.com.hk*. The semi-annual distributions are dependent on TraHK’s performance and are not guaranteed.

TraHK may be delisted from the Stock Exchange.

 

Equity securities may fluctuate in value in response to the activities of individual companies and general market and economic conditions. Diversification does not ensure a profit or guarantee against loss. Exchange-traded funds (“ETFs”), such as TraHK, trade like stocks, are subject to investment risk, fluctuate in market value and may trade at prices above or below the ETF's net asset value. Brokerage commissions and ETF expenses will reduce returns. Frequent trading of ETFs could significantly increase commissions and other costs such that they may offset any savings from low fees or costs.
