Mirae Asset Expands Suite of Fixed Income ETFs with its Global X US Treasury 3-5 Year ETF

–  The launch of the Global X US Treasury 3-5 Year ETF (3450) enriches Mirae Asset’s suite of fixed income ETFs

–  With a total of 36 ETFs listed in Hong Kong[1], Mirae Asset is well-positioned to meet the diverse demands of investors seeking income-investing and thematic growth strategies

HONG KONG, July 11, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Mirae Asset Global Investments (Hong Kong) Limited, (the "Firm" or "Mirae Asset") today announced the launch of its new Global X US Treasury 3-5 Year ETF (3450). The fund, which begins trading on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange ("HKEX") today, provides investors with convenient access to US Treasuries.

US Treasuries, often considered a low-risk asset, are currently renowned for their historical high yield levels since the Global Financial Crisis. Intermediate-term US Treasury Bonds provide a balanced option between returns and volatility across interest rate cycles. As market expectations for rate cuts in 2024 rise, bond prices are anticipated to increase. Investors are seeking US Treasury Bonds to manage price and income returns.

However, accessing the US Treasury Bond market could be inconvenient for Hong Kong investors due to factors such as differing trading hours and dividend withholding taxes from the US market. The Global X US Treasury 3-5 Year ETF (3450) emerges as an efficient solution. The ETF serves as an investment vehicle for Hong Kong investors to trade US Treasury Bonds during Hong Kong local trading hours.

Ms. Xinyi Sun, Head of Fixed Income ETF Portfolio Management of Mirae Asset Global Investment (Hong Kong) Limited, stated "We are thrilled to introduce this Global X US Treasury 3-5 Year ETF to the market, which will enhance our suite of income-generating investment products for investors. With the anticipated rate cuts by the US Federal Reserve in the coming months, this ETF will provide investors with a compelling tool to capitalize on potential capital appreciation opportunities, while maintaining a favorable risk-return profile."

Mr. Wanyoun CHO, Chief Executive Officer of Mirae Asset Global Investments (Hong Kong) Limited, said: "The launch of this ETF bolsters our suite of fixed income ETFs, offering investors access to diversified sources of income. We remain committed to enhancing our product lineup to cater the evolving needs of our investors."

The Global X US Treasury 3-5 Year ETF (3450) tracks the Mirae Asset US Treasury 3-5 Year Index. With this new ETF, the Firm now offers a total of 36 ETFs listed in Hong Kong, including 5 fixed income ETFs, spanning a diverse array of investment capabilities from thematic growth, income, core to commodities.

Important Information

Investors should not base investment decisions on this material alone. Please refer to the Prospectus for details including product features and the risk factors. Investment involves risks. Past performance is not indicative of future performance. There is no guarantee of the repayment of the principal. Investors should note:

The investment objective of Global X US Treasury 3-5 Year ETF (the "Fund") is to provide investment results that, before deduction of fees and expenses, closely correspond to the performance of the Mirae Asset US Treasury 3-5 Year Index (the "Underlying Index"). The Fund is exposed to the Credit/Default risk of issuers of the debt securities that the Fund may invest in; the Credit Rating risk that the credit ratings assigned by rating agencies are subject to limitations and do not guarantee the creditworthiness of the security and/or issuer at all times; the Downgrading risk that the Manager may or may not be able to dispose of the debt securities that are being downgraded; the Interest rate risk that the prices of debt securities rise when interest rates fall, whilst their prices fall when interest rates rise; the Policy risk that the changes in macro-economic policies in the US may have an influence over the US’ capital markets and affect the pricing of the bonds in the Fund’s portfolio, which may in turn adversely affect the return of the Fund; the Sovereign debt risk that the Fund’s investment in US Treasury securities may be exposed to political, social and economic risks that the Fund may suffer significant losses when there is a default of the US Treasury; the valuation risk that the valuation of the Fund’s instruments may involve uncertainties and judgmental determinations. If such valuation turns out to be incorrect, this may affect the Net Asset Value calculation of the Fund. The Underlying Index is a new index. The Underlying Index has minimal operating history by which investors can evaluate its previous performance. There can be no assurance as to the performance of the Underlying Index. The Fund may be riskier than other exchange traded funds tracking more established indices with longer operating history. The Underlying Index is subject to concentration risk as a result of tracking the performance of a single geographical region, namely the US, and is concentrated in debt securities of a single issuer, namely the US Treasury. The Fund’s value may be more volatile than that of a fund having a more diverse portfolio and may be more susceptible to adverse economic, political, policy, foreign exchange, liquidity, tax, legal or regulatory event affecting the US market. The base currency of the Fund is USD but the trading currency of the Fund is in HKD. The Net Asset Value of the Fund and its performance may be affected unfavourably by fluctuations in the exchange rates between these currencies and the base currency and by changes in exchange rate controls. The borrower may fail to return the securities lent out in a timely manner or at all. The Fund may as a result suffer from a loss or delay when recovering the securities lent out. This may restrict the Fund’s ability in meeting delivery or payment obligations from realisation requests. As part of the securities lending transactions, there is a risk of shortfall of collateral value due to inaccurate pricing of the collateral, adverse market movements in the collateral value or change of value of securities lent. This may cause significant losses to the Fund. The trading price of the Units on the SEHK is driven by market factors such as the demand and supply of the Units. Therefore, the Units may trade at a substantial premium or discount to the Fund’s Net Asset Value. Payments of distributions out of capital and/or effectively out of capital amounts to a return or withdrawal of part of an investor’s original investment or from any capital gains attributable to that original investment. Any such distributions involving payment of distributions out of capital or effectively out of capital of the Fund may result in an immediate reduction in the Net Asset Value per Unit of the Fund and will reduce the capital available for future investment.
