China ETFs Get New Kid on the Block

For people disinclined to buy individual Chinese stocks, a better way into the country than buying a broad fund like Claymore/AlphaShares China All Cap ETF might be to purchase specialized or thematic funds heavy in Chinese stocks without the risk factors mentioned earlier.

As an example, using iShares Emerging Market Infrastructure ETF (EMIF) for 5% of a portfolio and the same amount in PowerShares Global Coal Portfolio (PKOL) would create an overall portfolio weight of 2.7% in China. Fund provider GlobalX has filed for six Chinese sector ETFs which, when they are listed, will make it easier to open up exposure but still avoid obvious risk spots.
At the time of publication, EMIF is a client holding.
