What’s in the name 'Synthetic'? CETF may have a minor holding in a swap (see % below in Derivative holdings table). When A-shares are not immediately available CETF may use a swap, a form of derivative, as a backup to track the performance of the CSI 300 Index. Australian regulators require the word 'Synthetic' to be included in CETF's name because the use of the swap may exceed 5% of the net asset value of the ETF.
