Why Tradeweb is Your Link to China’s Onshore Bond Market – the Second Largest in the World

China’s onshore bond market is now the second largest in the world. Chinese government bonds (CGB) are included in major global bond indexes such as the FTSE World Government Bond Index, Bloomberg Global Aggregate Bond Index and JPMorgan GBI-EM Index.

As offshore investors’ interest in China’s onshore bond market has grown over the past few years, so has their need for risk management tools. Tradeweb’s growing list of China Access Channels provide seamless and efficient electronic links between global market participants and China’s onshore community.

Tradeweb was the first electronic platform to offer global investors access to the Chinese bond market via Northbound Bond Connect, as well as the first trading platform to deliver the first fully electronic request-for-quote (RFQ) access via China Interbank Bond Market (CIBM) Direct Link – another popular route for overseas investors connecting to and trading in the Chinese onshore bond market. Following shortly thereafter, Tradeweb was one of the first platforms to launch Southbound Bond Connect.

Tradeweb’s Latest China Access Channel Launched: Swap Connect

Tradeweb again participated in the development of the world’s first derivatives market access scheme: Swap Connect. Through this new electronic trading channel, which aims to internationalize CNY IRS, offshore investors can trade and central counterparty (CCP) clear onshore CNY IRS without changing their existing trading and settlement practices.

As we continuously look at ways to innovate and expand access to new global markets, we’re helping client to discover improved liquidity, streamline their workflow, and have transparency all in one place.
