Updated Mar 8, 2019
Developed Asia Pacific exchange-traded funds (ETF) are the ETFs which pool in money from its investors and use the capital to take investment positions in stocks, and other financial instruments, of the businesses headquartered in the developed countries of the Asian region. Additionally, such ETFs may also invest in those companies which are generating a major part of their revenue and earnings from developed Asia-based operations. For instance, Toyota and Honda are listed in the American stock markets, but are primarily based in Japan which is considered to be an Asian financial powerhouse and a developed market economy of Asia. Such stocks and companies qualify for investing by the Developed Asia Pacific ETFs

How the Developed Asia Pacific ETFs Work?

Being the biggest and the most populous regions of the globe, Asia is home to several big businesses. While many reputed business are family-owned and privately held, there are a good number of companies which are also listed on the local (and global) stock exchanges and are open for public investment. This allows a lot of scope and variety for the Developed Asia ETFs to invest the ETF capital. One can find ETFs that take long-only positions in developed market equities of Asia, or take leveraged equity positions using derivative contracts to magnify the returns. There are country specific developed Asia ETFs, like those investing only in Japanese or Singapore market securities, and there are ETFs which invest in hedge funds of Asian economic powerhouses. One can find high dividend paying value ETFs for Asia, growth focused ETFs, as well as blend ETFs for the region.
