[단독] 美 첫 ‘K팝 ETF,’ 방탄 하이브 주식으로 10% 구성By Jung Min-kyung

24일 한 업계 관계자는 코리아헤럴드와 만나 현재 해당 ETF의 지수 설계를 담당한 한국 콘텐츠 지식재산권 기업 콘텐츠 테크놀로지스가 구성 종목의 10%를 하이브 주식으로 편성할 것이라고 밝혔다.
관계자는 “해당 ETF는 패시브 ETF이기에 수익률을 달성하도록 운용하지만 그만큼 변동성이 적은 편이다”면서 “하이브 시총이 9조 정도지만 패시브 ETF로 운용되기 때문에 20-30% 대신 한도가 적용된 10%로 구성될 것”이라고 말했다.
케이팝 ETF는 미 증권거래위원회 (SEC)의 심사를 받고 있으며, 콘텐츠 테크놀로지스는 7월 상장을 목표로 하고 있다. 해당 ETF가 미 증권거래위원회의 승인을 받으면 미국 증시에 상장되는 최초의 한국 대중문화 관련 ETF가 된다.
하이브 주가는 24일 오후 2시 30분 기준 전일보다 3,000원(-1.36%) 하락한 21만8000원에 거래 중이다.

Shares of Hybe, the company behind K-pop sensation BTS, will account for some 10 percent of the much-anticipated KPOP ETF, an exchange-traded fund designed by Seoul-based intellectual property-focused company builder Contents Technologies, an industry source said Tuesday.
“Hybe with its market cap standing at 8.9 trillion won ($7.1 million) is supposed to make up some 20 or 30 percent of the KPOP ETF, but with the product being a passive exchange traded-fund, there will be a cap putting it at some 10 percent of the portfolio,” a source close to the matter told The Korea Herald.
Designed by Contents Technologies to track a custom index also built by the Seoul-based firm, it is currently being reviewed by the US Securities and Exchange Commission to debut on the US stock market. If launched, it will mark the first K-pop related ETF to debut on the market.
The passive ETF is set to provide exposure to companies in the entertainment and interactive media and services industries listed on the Korean stock exchange. The index will track not only K-pop firms, but companies that deal with Korean content, including TV shows and movies.
It will be launched with the aid of Oklahoma-based ETF issuer Exchange Traded Concepts, with Contents Technologies aiming to debut it in July.
Hybe was trading at 217,500 won per share on the nation’s benchmark Kospi around 2 p.m.
Contents Technologies, led by 28-year-old CEO Lee Jang-won, focuses on transparent company building and intellectual-property investment in music.
