Hang Seng IM plans to delist $5.5bn ETF as part of SSGA’s Tracker Fund takeover

Quick Summary AI Powered

The long-awaited ETF Connect programme is a disappointment for many Hong Kong ETF issuers due to the initial narrow scope and high asset threshold for products that qualify in the scheme.*Ignites Asia is a news service published by FT Specialist for professionals working in the asset management industry.

If Hang Seng IM’s proposal to delist the Hang Seng index ETF passes on July 13, the ETF will cease trading on September 5.
