Recently I've been looking at 2801.HK to gain some lower cost exposure to the Chinese market, but I'm a bit nervous about Hong Kong. I'm a relative beginner, and don't think I know enough about currency risk. Am I better off going with an Ireland-domiciled ETF, even at higher cost?

Relatively longterm successful now. . The 2 Ireland domiciled ones that are large enough to survive (assets under management larger than 100 mio EUR) track the MSCI Emerging - China NET: -the iShares MSCI China UCITS ETF USD (Acc) ISIN IE00BJ5JPG56 has the advantage to be an accumulating one, so dividends do not need to be re-invested by you which reduces performance because of trading fees. TER is 0.40%, ticker ICGA in EUR on german Xetra stock exchange -iShares MSCI China A UCITS ETF ISIN IE00BQT3WG13 is a much larger distributing one (dividends quarterly), same TER 0.40%, ticker CNYA in USD on London Stock Exchange and ticker 36BZ in EUR on german Xetra stock exchange .
