Asian property ETFs exclude zombie Japan

David Tuckwell

Goldman Sachs has launched a new ETF tracking its own Investment Grade Corporate Bond Index.

The index compiles top performing corporate bonds in North American. Bonds have a minimum of one year to maturity and must be rated higher than BBB- by Standard & Poor.


Japan's Nikko Asset Management has listed a property ETF, tracking the FTSE EPRA/NAREIT Asia ex Japan Index, which has seen a 60 percent return the past five years. (1495:JP)

Japanese property has been excluded, despite the issuer being Japan-based and the ETF Japan listed, because the Japanese property market has been stagnant and to help Japanese investors diversify.


No ETFs to show.
