S&P Dow Jones Indices went on to note “According to our published index rules, Alibaba Group Holding would be eligible for all standard S&P Dow Jones Global Benchmarks that include Chinese stocks. In particular, it will be screened for inclusion in the S&P China BMI, and therefore the S&P Emerging BMI and S&P Global BMI, according to the index’s standard IPO addition policy.”

That means ETFs such as the SPDR S&P China ETF (NYSEArca: GXC) and the SPDR S&P Emerging Asia Pacific ETF (NYSEArca: GMF). Those ETFs have $980 million and $723 million in assets under management, respectively. [Alibaba’s ETF Prospects Improve With S&P News]
