Global X, the exchange traded funds issuer known for its unique lineup of income-generating and international funds, will close its China bond fund, the Global X GF China Bond ETF (NYSEArca: CHNB).
The Global X GF China Bond ETF tracks the S&P China Composite Select Bond Index, which is designed to offer exposure to “Chinese sovereign bonds, agency bonds and bonds issued by Central State-Owned Enterprises (CSOEs) denominated in Chinese yuan,” according to S&P Dow Jones Indices.
CHNB’s underlying index only includes bonds with maturities of at least one year but no more than seven years. Included securities must be fixed rate non-zero coupon bonds, according to S&P Dow Jones Indices.[related_stories]
