GlobalRMB is the only English-language service to follow the RMB through its internationalisation journey.

The internationalisation of the renminbi is one of the key financial market topics in the world today. From the very first efforts to allow foreign access to onshore assets and the birth of the offshore RMB bond market, policy and regulatory liberalisations have surged forward. Offshore RMB hubs are now spreading across the world, central banks are increasingly expanding their reserves of RMB-denominated assets, while fund managers, banks and corporates are taking advantage of the opportunities for trade, funding and investment created by the sweeping changes taking place. 

In early 2014 GlobalCapital launched GlobalRMB, a dedicated service covering the internationalisation of the renminbi, to track this rapidly growing area. Building on the foundations laid by Asiamoney’s RMB Brief, it combines editorial coverage of transactions, regulatory developments and product initiatives with a wealth of data to give subscribers the most comprehensive offering available.

GlobalRMB — what we cover:

Offshore RMB bond issues: GlobalRMB brings together detailed transaction coverage from the GlobalCapital Asia and GlobalRMB teams and a database of public syndicated offshore RMB bonds to provide a complete picture of the trends in this market. The database is fully customisable and searchable, allowing quick summaries of transaction volumes based on user-chosen criteria, and also drives GlobalRMB’s proprietary bookrunner league tables. From our deals database, users can create their own bespoke league tables.

RMB hubs: Offshore renminbi clearing banks are proliferating around the world, with a ‰flurry of appointments in Europe in 2014 as London, Paris and Frankfurt step up their activity, joining Asian hubs such as Hong Kong, Singapore and Seoul. GlobalRMB tracks all the developments in current and aspiring hub cities, in areas such as clearing infrastructure, central bank swap line agreements and the Renminbi Qualified Foreign Institutional Investor (RQFII) scheme, backed up with data on offshore RMB deposit figures around the world as well as all individual RQFII quota approvals.

Policy and regulation: It’s easy to be swamped by the deluge of RMB-related policy and regulatory developments coming out of China. Whether you are an investor, a corporate treasurer or a banker advising clients, GlobalRMB helps you navigate the complexity, from the latest developments in Shanghai’s Free Trade Zone to liberalisations on cross-border currency sweeping.
