Event overview

China’s regulatory authorities have made sustained efforts in recent years to open up access to onshore bond markets to international investors and issuers. New pathways to investment in China’s onshore bond markets have enabled increasing numbers of international investors to participate in the bond market that is now the second largest in the world with an outstanding volume exceeding RMB 117 trillion (USD 18 trillion).

This joint event from ICMA and NAFMII brought together international and Chinese market participants and experts to take a look at the potential benefits of accessing China’s onshore bond markets, as well as the regulatory environment and operational channels to enable investment and issuance into these markets. It will featured the launch of two guides, “Panda Bonds: Raising finance in China's bond market - case studies” and “Investing in China’s interbank bond market: a handbook”.

Topics covered include:
  • China bond market structure, dynamics, liquidity, and regulation
  • The panda bond market: current conditions and outlook
  • Three routes for international investors into China’s interbank bond market (CIBM)
