Bloomberg Upgrades China Bond Offering for Global Investors

Hong Kong  – WEBWIRE

At the Bond Connect Anniversary Summit 2019, Bloomberg announced new product enhancements to further facilitate global investments in China’s onshore bond market. The enhancements include block trade allocation for offshore investors and support for structured product trading on Bloomberg’s electronic trading access to Bond Connect.

The new pre- and post-trade allocation functionality for Bond Connect will allow global investors to trade on behalf of multiple funds in one block trade via the Bloomberg Terminal. This will enable a streamlined workflow of large transactions and integration with existing order management systems.

In addition, global investors can trade Chinese onshore asset-backed securities among other fixed income securities on Bond Connect via the Bloomberg Terminal. According to data from ChinaBond, foreign holdings of Chinese asset-back securities hit a record high of 16.4 billion yuan in April 2019.

“Since the start of the year, we have seen a significant increase in foreign investor participation and trading activity in Chinese bonds,” said Bing Li, Head of Greater China at Bloomberg. “We have been working closely with CFETS and Bond Connect Company Limited to upgrade our offerings to facilitate further participation by foreign investors in this burgeoning market, and connect onshore market makers with the global investment community. This will help advance the further development of China’s financial market over the long-term.”

According to data compiled by Bloomberg, foreign holdings of Chinese onshore bonds reached 1.88 trillion yuan as of May 2019. Foreign investors bought at least 109.3 billion yuan of Chinese bonds in May, the highest in the past year. May also saw foreign holdings of China’s policy bank bonds rising to a record high.
