The AF China Bond 50 Index was CLI’s first product and is the first liquid Chinese mainland bond index to benchmark this $14 trillion market. CLI also has a joint venture partnership with a Hong Kong asset manager, for the launch of managed fund products alongside these branded ETFs as active outperformance vehicles. This will allow for the significant growth of higher fee AUM, in an area of strong competitive advantage.


CLI, in partnership with its SEC regulated, US based investment advisors, is launching three branded ETFs on the NYSE in Q1, 2022. These ETFs – on Mainland Bonds, Electric Cars and Fintech – all focus on Chinese leadership in these sectors. The ETFs are benchmarked by indexes created and run by its wholly owned subsidiary, Asia Financial Index Group.
