A Financial Times Service
China Confidential - Premium Investment Insight
13 March 2012

To date, the growth of the offshore renminbi (CNH) financial markets in Hong Kong has been driven by three factors. One has been the accumulation of CNH deposits in the banks of the Special Administrative Region thanks to the increasing amount of trade that has been settled in that currency. The second has been the desire of the authorities in Beijing for Hong Kong to continue to develop as the premier offshore financial services centre of Greater China. The third has, for much of the last year or so, been the widespread assumption on the part of investors who have bought CNH-denominated assets that the currency will appreciate smoothly.
