Chinese ETF Buyers Whipsawed Amid Widest Price Swings Since 2010

Updated on

U.S. investors pouring money into Chinese exchange-traded funds are finding it comes at a price: surging volatility.

ETFs that track Chinese equities on mainland, Hong Kong and U.S. bourses have attracted $1.1 billion in new money over the past month as the Shanghai Composite Index climbed to a seven-year high, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. The May inflows were second only to Japanese ETFs on American exchanges with the iShares China Large-Cap fund attracting $732 million, the most since 2012 and the biggest inflow among the 45 securities focused on Chinese stocks.
