Invesco's ETF Menu Includes Dim Sum

Reported by Hung Tran

It look like Van Eck isn't the only fund shop that has a taste for dim sum. Invesco PowerShares Capital Management LLC[see profile], has unveiled the PowerShares Chinese Yuan Dim Sum Bond Portfolio.

The fund will provide access to Chinese yuan-denominated "Dim Sum" bonds issued and settled outside mainland China. DSUM will have an expense ratio of 45 basis points.

"The Dim Sum bond market offers attractive coupons, and the ability to participate in the appreciation potential of the yuan over time," stated Ben Fulton, Invesco PowerShares managing director of global ETFs. "We believe the PowerShares Chinese Yuan Dim Sum Bond Portfolio provides investors with both convenient, and low cost(1) access to the yuan-denominated debt market."

According to the firm, the Dim Sum bond market was introduced in 2007 when the People's Republic of China-incorporated financial institutions were first allowed to issue yuan-denominated bonds offshore. Since then, the market for Dim Sum bonds has seen significant growth, particularly since its deregulation in July 2010. Dim Sum bonds are generally issued in Hong Kong by governments, agencies, supranationals and corporations.
