Business in 67 Shanghai-traded ETFs halted by Hong Kong typhoon delay

SHANGHAI, Aug 25 (Reuters) - The Shanghai Stock Exchange said subscription and redemption in 67 exchange-traded funds (ETFs) would be halted on Thursday due to a trading suspension in Hong Kong triggered by a typhoon.

The business suspension in the ETFs, which invest fully or partly in Hong Kong-traded shares, was made at the request of relevant asset managers, the Shanghai bourse said in a statement.

The Hong Kong stock exchange delayed the start of trading on both the securities and derivatives markets on Thursday morning due to Tropical Storm Ma-on.

The ETFs affected include ChinaAME Hang Seng Technology ETF 513180.SS , China Life AMP CSI SH-HK-SZ 300 Index ETF 517300.SS and China Southern Hang Seng Index ETF 513600.SS .

In a separate statement, the Shanghai Stock Exchange said that the southbound leg of its Stock Connect scheme with Hong Kong would also be suspended for the Thursday session.
