State Street Global Advisors has launched a series of ETFs throughout Asia, including the Tracker Fund in Hong Kong, the streetTRACKS Straits Times Index Fund in Singapore, and a Kospi200 ETF in South Korea. The Taiwan ETF will be launched in partnership with Polaris following the formation of an as yet unnamed Taipei-based consortium incorporating the two firms in 2002
“Given the advantages of low cost and diversification, we are confident that this ETF will be popular amongst both Taiwanese and international investors,” said Vincent Duhamel, managing director of State Street Global Advisors Asia.
