What to Watch in 2014


Goldman Sachs predicts the Chinese economy will expand 7.8 percent in 2014. This is on the heels of the government’s push to make the economy more consumer-driven and relax restrictions on foreign investment. In this environment, one ETF to watch will be the Global X China Consumer Fund (CHIQ), which tracks mainland consumer companies underrepresented in the largest China ETF, the iShares China Large-Cap ETF (FXI).

Also worth watching is the Guggenheim China Small Cap Index ETF (HAO), tracking small companies, and the KraneShares CSI Five Year Plan ETF (KFYP), which tries to track companies in sectors the Chinese government has stated it wants to see thrive.

Finally, look out for the possible launch of a new one-stop-shop China ETF that tracks all of the different China shares in one fund.
