Chinese bond market: Evolution and characteristics

Presented by

About this talk

Chinese financial markets have developed rapidly in recent years, both relative to the size of the domestic economy and the global economy. The Chinese government bond market has a market capitalization that now exceeds that of UK gilts and German Bunds. Reforms in Chinese financial markets, and inclusion of Chinese equities and bonds in major global indexes, have improved access to, and increased foreign participation in Chinese markets. In a recent research paper, FTSE Russell reviewed the transformation of this rising financial asset with a number of considerations, including: • Evolution and structure of the Chinese bond market • Relative performance of Chinese bonds versus other markets • Correlation of returns with other major markets • Impact of introduction into global bond indexes • Risks to the Chinese bond market Join experts from Goldman Sachs Asset Management and index provider FTSE Russell as they discuss the evolution and characteristics of the Chinese bond market, the FTSE Goldman Sachs China Government Bond Index and potential ways for investors to access it.
