A Financial Times Service
China Confidential - Premium Investment Insight
14 September 2012

Hong Kong will launch its first-ever offshore renminbi (CNH) denominated futures to be traded on the city’s exchange next week, broadening the pool of CNH derivatives on offer. CME Group, meanwhile, recently announced plans to launch deliverable renminbi futures in coming months. In our view, these moves will (at most) give market participants another option to hedge foreign exchange risk. However, the CNH market continues to suffer from thin liquidity. Adding another product to the CNH menu is unlikely to address outstanding problems such as high hedging costs.
