Thai bourse lists ThaiDEX SET100 ETF on February 21

BANGKOK, February 19, 2013 – The Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) will list ThaiDEX SET100 ETF, managed by One Asset Management Limited, on its main board on February 21, under the ticker symbol “TH100.”

TH100, an open-end exchange-traded fund (ETF), will track the movement of the SET100 Index (SET100), calculated from the stock prices of the top 100 listed companies on SET in terms of market capitalization, high liquidity and compliance with requirements regarding distribution of shares to minor shareholders.

"The SET100 Index is a key investment benchmark on SET, as it consists of the top 100 stocks in terms of market capitalization that have high liquidity. In 2012, the SET100 Index rose more than 33 percent, with a dividend yield of 3.07 percent, and gave total returns of 37 percent. Trading the TH100 is as convenient as investing in all 100 stocks and investors will get returns tracking to SET100 index movements. Investors can buy or sell the TH100 at market prices, the same as with trading equities. In January, the SET100 index rose 5.47 percent," said SET Executive Vice President Kesara Manchusree.

Win Udomrachtavanich, CEO of One Asset Management, said: "One Asset Management, the leader in innovative ETF investment, strongly believes that the ThaiDEX SET100 ETF, or TH100, will help complete Thailand’s ETF market development after we launched ETFs tracking the SET50 Index, SET High-dividend Index, and world gold prices. We believe TH100 supports and encourages passive investment for investors. This is another step in taking Thailand’s capital market towards becoming a key international capital market.”  

KGI Securities (Thailand) pcl and Bualuang Securities pcl are participating dealers, while KGI is also market maker. Thailand Securities Depository Co., Ltd. is registar for TH100.

ASEAN  ANALYSIS

This year in Thailand-what next?

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
