Bond connect points way

Business | Carrie Chen 18 May 2017

The launch of bond connect may be seen as the precursor of the Chinese bond market being included in the main indexes, and it may bring an inflow of at least US$20 billion once it is included in the JP Morgan bond index, says China International Fund Management.

Some fund managers believe bond connect needs time to warm up, as more regulations are expected and credit rating systems need to be improved.

The People's Bank of China and the Hong Kong Monetary Authority approved the bond connect scheme on Tuesday.

Angus Hui, fund manager of Asian fixed income at Schroders, does not expect a large trading volume in the initial stage since institutional investors can already invest in the China interbank bond market through other means.
