Direct Investment in China
China Bond Direct Investment via QFII & BOND CONNECT
Difference: Onshore RMB Bond & Offshore RMB Bond
Although many investors have invested in China bonds, they generally buy offshore RMB bonds and denominated in U.S. dollars. How is this different from onshore RMB bonds? It turns out that the market value of the offshore Chinese bond market is only 5% of the onshore market, which means that the onshore Chinese bond market is twenty times larger than the offshore market.
At the same time, the main buyers in the onshore market are local Chinese and the buyers in the offshore market are foreigners. The mentality and investment behavior of the two investors are very different. Therefore, for the same Chinese bonds, the scale of the onshore and offshore markets is different, and the participants are also different. Therefore, the trend is not highly correlated. It can be regarded as two products with different properties and trends. It is one of the channel to diversify investment.
