The Chinese Exchange Trade Fund (ETF) is expanding and has the potential for future expansion. HuAn Funds launched the market four years back and manage the Chinese Gold ETF. After the recession of 2008, the company started to explore the gold products. As world’s largest financial institutions fell during the recession so the attraction towards gold became more. They did a thorough analysis of gold investment characteristics. They studied the Shanghai stock exchange and Shanghai gold exchange data after many years of investigation they decided to launch gold ETF in China. The gold ETF finally got approval in 2013  and got enlisted in Shanghai stock exchange. The result they achieved was beyond their expectation both in terms of investors response and market effectiveness.
