Until 2010, the PRC government allowed only financial entities incorporated in China to issue Renminbi (RMB) denominated bonds in Hong Kong. Since the liberalization of rules related to RMB-denominated bond issuance, a diverse range of issuers have accessed this market through various methods. As the investor base for RMB-denominated bonds has expanded and more issuers have elected to access funds through offshore issuance, the market has matured to start balancing investor concerns for greater credit protection against issuer-side demands for flexibility.
Please join Jason T. Elder and Mark R. Uhrynuk from our Hong Kong office as they discuss the background of RMB bonds, current structures and issues as well as the latest developments and trends affecting companies considering the issuance of RMB bonds.
