HONG KONG,Jan.13,2021/PRNewswire-AsiaNet/--

New report discusses Asia megatrends and offers a playbook to participate in 
opportunities from disruptive innovations and technology-enabled productivity 
growth benefitting through passage of time

Premia Partners, a leading Hong Kong-based ETF issuer, today releases its 
latest whitepaper "Where to find growth: Tailwinds from Asia Megatrends & 
Playbook to participate in Asia Innovations and Technology-enabled Productivity 

Contrary to developed markets, Asian ETFs still lack product breadth for 
secular growth coverage and are constrained by mainstream market 
capitalization-weighted approaches. This creates a void for investors seeking 
to benefit from the region's structural tailwinds in themes such as smart EV & 
new energy, 5G, AI, cloud computing, biotech & life science, digitalization 
transformation, IoT, robotic automation, eSports and more. 

As investors are increasingly looking to Asia for growth opportunities, finding 
a relevant approach is more important than ever. Furthermore, it is vital to 
empower investors with use cases of how these growth themes fit into their 
broader portfolio strategies, especially when traditional asset allocation 
models often cannot sufficiently address such disruptive trends. This report 
aims to empower readers with a playbook to position ahead for tomorrow today by 

-Enormous growth opportunities as megatrends play out in Asia 
-How to break away from the conventional GICS sector mindset and re-think 
"Innovative Technologies" more holistically 
-How the Premia FactSet Asia Innovative Technology Index (AIT) captures growth 
from a broad array of innovative industries that disrupt their respective space 
-Use cases of AIT as a portfolio building block for global investors

"In the past it might seem only through alternative strategies can investors 
access opportunities in innovative leaders that are transforming Asia," said 
Rebecca Chua, Managing Partner of Premia Partners, "Now by leveraging the 
FactSet RBICS taxonomy, we are delighted to offer investors a low-cost, liquid 
and transparent tool to participate in these opportunities efficiently".

For the full year of 2020, the Premia Asia Innovative Technology ETF (3181 HK / 
9181 HK) which tracks the AIT Index generated a total return of 59.8%, and is 
among the best performing Asia ETFs globally. The ETF charges a total expense 
ratio of 0.5% p.a., with no performance fee, and zero stamp duties, 
withholding, or capital gains taxes.
