China Confidential - Premium Investment Insight
20 March 2012

A dearth of renminbi products in Hong Kong has meant that the much-touted renminbi qualified foreign institutional investor (RQFII) programme would, at least in theory, almost certainly prove popular among investors. But the pilot scheme, which allows Hong Kong-based Chinese asset managers to use offshore renminbi (CNH) to invest in the onshore bond market, has fallen short of expectations. Since its December launch, the RQFII initiative has failed to attract enough investors to fill up even half its Rmb20bn ($3.17bn, £2bn, €2.35bn) quota allocated by the State Administration of Foreign Exchange (SAFE).
