More than a year following China’s decision to widen foreign investors’ access to its interbank bond market, things are starting to fall into place. China’s inclusion in the Emerging Markets Government Bond Index and such other indices as the Asian Government Bond Index and the Asia-Pacific Government Bond Index is a positive development that promises more foreign inflows.
In the G3 market, Chinese issuers account for the lion’s share of primary activity as local government financing vehicles join government and private corporates in issuing bonds. Chinese issuers now account for up to 60% of the total market activity worth over US$200 billion a year. Analysts expect more Chinese issuers will debut in the international market in the next few years.
China’s activity in both the onshore and offshore bond markets reflect the country’s rising stature in the global financial markets. There is increasing interest in China’s bond markets among foreign investors. For now, foreign investment accounts for less than 2% of China’s US$9.5 trillion onshore bond market.
An understanding of Chinese issuers and the onshore market is vital for any global fixed income manager planning to invest in China. While opportunities abound, the challenges around investing in the country often are quite complex. The weakening of the renminbi, concerns around credit ratings, recent corporate defaults and a general lack of clarity about the inner workings of the onshore bond market have slowed efforts of global investors to access China’s debt market.
Now on its 11th year, the Asian Bond Markets Summit is the definitive fixed income event in Asia that draws the largest participation of issuers and institutional investors. Organized in association with the Asian Development Bank, the Asian Bond Markets Summit is a part of Asean Bond Markets Initiative especially in deepening the development of Asia’s bond markets.
