How Bond Connect Links you to the China Bond Market

Tradeweb played a leading role in the design, development and implementation of Bond Connect, in partnership with China Foreign Exchange Trade System (CFETS), Central Moneymarkets Unit (CMU) and Bond Connect Company Limited (BCCL).

Bond Connect lets global investors leverage familiar trading and settlement practices by directly trading into the China Interbank Bond Market (CIBM) through their own trading account and own custodian bank.
