Hywin Taps Into Global Themes

The Chinese business is working alongside Switzerland's Leonteq and the Hong Kong-based Arta TechFin platform to launch products gaining exposure to themes such as electric vehicles, AI, strong US large-cap stocks, a revived Japanese corporate world, and rising defence and security spending.

Chinese wealth management group Hywin Holdings, alongside Switzerland-based Leonteq and Hong Kong-based Arta TechFin, an assets platform, are to launch a range of structured products for high net worth clients in Asia.

The offerings are called the “Global Mega-Trends Series,” comprising principal-protected structured products, Hywin said in a statement.

This new suite of thematic products continues the product issuance program unveiled by Hywin, Leonteq and Arta in April. Arta’s subsidiary Arta Global Markets Limited acts as a distribution partner of the structured products.

“Trends are relatively easy to spot, but much harder to catch,” Nick Xiao, chief executive of Hywin International, the Hong Kong subsidiary of Hywin Holdings, said. “This Global Mega-Trends Series offers Asia investors the opportunity to participate in distinct and rewarding multi-year developments, without losing the benefits of diversification or capital protection.”

All the products offer 100 per cent capital protection, tapping into concerns about a need to capture market returns and guard capital in volatile times.

The series includes:

“Electric Champions”
