China allows investors to buy offshore debt via Hong Kong through bond connect

Mainland China’s investors will be allowed to buy and sell offshore debt through Hong Kong in a widening of the Bond Connect transborder investment channel that enhances the city’s role as China’s financial centre. The so-called southbound leg of the Bond Connect will take effect from September 24, according to an announcement by the Hong Kong Monetary Authority. So far, 2,733 global institutional investors have been approved to use the northbound Bond Connect to access China’s US$17.5 trillion bond market.
