SSE and LuxSE launch Green Bond Channel

RELATED TOPICS​

The Shanghai Stock Exchange (SSE) and Luxembourg Stock Exchange (LuxSE) has launched the Green Bond Channel providing international investors access to data and information on Chinese domestic green bonds listed in Shanghai. 

Information about 18 green bonds listed on SSE, representing 11 Chinese corporate issuers, will be available in English via the Luxembourg Stock Exchange, with access to the green bonds listed in Shanghai routed via existing execution channels.
 
The cooperation between the Luxembourg Stock Exchange and the Shanghai Stock Exchange focuses on providing relevant information in English about Chinese green bonds to offshore investors. The initiative dates back to September 2017 when the Shanghai Stock Exchange and the Luxembourg Stock Exchange signed an addendum to an existing MoU.
 
China boasts one of the world’s largest bond markets, valued at USD9 trillion, with a production of green and sustainable bonds in excess of RMB250 billion (approx. EUR33 billion). However, the market may appear off-limits to the international investor community due to the difficulties of accessing the right level of information on the traded bonds. 
 
“The Green Bond Channel is an information channel which aims to bridge this information gap. Our key focus is on helping to enhance investment channels between China and Europe. Stock exchanges can support the mobilisation of investor demand for investment. By receiving enhanced visibility, issuers are exposed to a far wider segment of potential investors and a deeper pool of investment capital,” commented Robert Scharfe, CEO of LuxSE, at the official launch of the cooperation announced at the Public Meeting of the World Federation of Exchanges and the SSE on 8 June. 
 
China’s USD9 trillion bond market is the second largest in the world, but only 2 per cent of Chinese bonds are foreign-owned. The agreement will improve efficiency in connecting issuers and international investors. The Chinese-listed green bonds can be traded via existing execution channels. 
 
In March 2018, LuxSE extended the same display service to the Chinese Interbank Market and welcomed the first bond from a Chinese policy bank, the Agriculture Development Bank of China (ADBC).
