Opportunities in Chinese Bond and Alternative Markets - Allocate to China (“ATC”) Initiative Event Series

Le 16 octobre 2019

In collaboration with HSBC

Date and time: 09:30-14:30, 16th Oct 2019

Venue: HSBC Paris at Champs-Élysées


Allocate to China (“ATC”) Initiative is a research-based communication and solution platform bringing together global investors, asset managers and other stakeholders to share insights about China capital market, to build business relations and to form partnership. 

European investors have shown interest in two themes that will be featured at this forum: Chinese Bond Markets and Alternative Investments. 

China has the third-largest bond market in the world. Global investors now have the opportunity with the adoption of the CIBM Direct and Bond Connect programme to easily access the Chinese inter-bank bond market. Bloomberg Barclays Global Aggregate Index has included Chinese government bonds and Policy Bank bonds earlier this year as a result of this. With a yield level of approx. 3% for its 10-year benchmark government bond, investments into the Chinese bond market can be beneficial for European institutional investors facing low or negative yield environments in their respective markets.

Alternative investments in China, especially private market investments, have also garnered attention from European investors due to their higher risk-adjusted returns. Powered by innovative product offerings, China’s rise continues by creating sustainable investment opportunities for investors wanting to participate in the Chinese capital markets.

This forum will take place at HSBC’s iconic Champs-Élysées venue. You will have opportunity to partake in an active discussion around the Chinese bond and alternative markets with business leaders and investment professionals from both China and Europe. The forum will also take a closer look at the role of ESG and how this is influencing China in its investment strategies.
