In June, Hong Kong and Chinese regulators launched the long-awaited scheme to connect China's US$9 trillion bond market with overseas investors, marking another exciting milestone in the opening up of China's capital markets.

Under the Bond Connect programme foreign investors are now able to buy into China’s massive debt market directly through the Hong Kong Exchange. Eligible investors are mainly institutions, such as banks, insurance companies, brokerages and asset management firms. Prior to the Bond Connect program, foreign investors needed to go through a lengthy process of opening an account, applying for yuan quotas and finding a clearing agent with international settlement capability. The new Bond Connect scheme will offer simplified access and wide variety of new opportunities for foreign institutions and investors to benefit from the opening up of China massive on-shore bond market.
