Financial institutions

  • Investing

    Invest in China through a growing range of renminbi-denominated products from HSBC, available onshore on the Chinese mainland and in offshore markets worldwide.

    Access to Chinese investment themes has never been greater. HSBC offers access to the complete selection of renminbi securities traded offshore in London, Hong Kong and other markets as well as the onshore markets open to foreign investors.

    Renminbi markets open for investment

    We provide access to the complete range of investments in offshore renminbi (currency code CNH) in Hong Kong, London and other financial centres, which can be made with no restrictions from Chinese regulators. HSBC is also a leader in onshore investment (CNY), through various channels, including the Qualified Foreign Institutional Investor (QFII) and China Interbank Bond Market (CIBM) regulatory schemes.

    Investing offshore

    HSBC provides financial institutions wishing to invest offshore with renminbi deposits products, the Dim Sum bond market, structured products and money market funds. Renminbi-denominated equities are also becoming available in Hong Kong. Our solutions include:

    • Time deposits and certificates of deposit
    • Primary and secondary renminbi bonds issued offshore
    • FX linked structured deposits and notes
    • Interest-rate linked structured deposits and notes
    • Equity linked structured deposits and notes
    • Commodity-linked structured deposits
    • Renminbi funds
    • Renminbi equities
    • Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect

    Investing onshore

    HSBC can help investors can take position in onshore capital markets in a variety of assets through the Renminbi Qualified Foreign Institutional Investors (RQFII) and CIBM schemes.

    We provide a one-stop package to help investors gain RQFII status through our sub-custodian banking services on the mainland. HSBC also provides its RQFII customers with global custody; FX arrangement; bond trading and execution; and related investment services. Investors who are eligible to become RQFIIs include asset managers, insurers, securities traders, sovereign wealth funds, central banks, supranational organisations and banks (local, commercial and private). Other eligible investors include pension funds, charity funds and government investment institutions.

  • Financing

    With growing liquidity in the offshore market and with the onshore market opening up, renminbi debt capital markets provide financial institutions new avenues to diversify funding.

    Financial institutions can fund in offshore and onshore renminbi with HSBC.

    Diversify with Dim Sum

    We are an active underwriter and lead manager in the offshore Dim Sum market, and have a leading position in placing bonds among investors active in this market. HSBC was ranked first in the league table of lead managers by Bloomberg as of Q1 2016.

    Total Dim Sum issues have risen dramatically since the market opened in 2010 with gross issuances reaching RMB520 billion by the end of 2014. In 2016 HSBC Global Research forecasts issuance of RMB260-300 billion as issuers look to move to the onshore market to take advantage of possibly cheaper financing rates.

    Offshore channels

    Financial institutions looking for other offshore channels to fund can work with HSBC to raise bilateral and syndicated term loans; certificates of deposits; notes; and funds. Following the launch of the Hong Kong renminbi repo market in June 2012, HSBC bank can also help financial institutions borrow renminbi against a variety of collateral offshore such as government securities, equities and gold.

    Funding onshore and panda market

    As a registered bank on the Chinese mainland, HSBC offers financial institutions funding onshore with access to loans and arrangement of intercompany domestic loans. Although rates are converging, funds raised onshore are generally more expensive than offshore. As the onshore market opens up, we expect to see more opportunities for financial institutions*.

    *All financing is subject to a detailed credit assessment and approval.

  • Managing risk

    Financial institutions now have a suite of instruments to hedge renminbi currency and interest-rate risks. Transactions on both the onshore and offshore renminbi foreign exchange markets now total over USD100 billion on a daily basis, including deliverable foreign exchange (FX) spot and deliverable/non-deliverable FX swaps and options.

    As one of the most active participants in offshore renminbi foreign exchange and a registered dealer on the mainland, HSBC gives financial institutions a complete set of risk management instruments.

    CNH deliverable market

    Offshore, HSBC quotes deliverable FX swaps up to two years and FX options up to five years with further tenors available on a case-by-case basis. Liquidity has risen significantly with daily turnover of USD17 billion for FX swaps and USD2-3 billion for FX options. HSBC also offers renminbi cross currency swaps, liquid up to five years or maximum tenor of ten years.

    CNY non-deliverable market

    HSBC offers the onshore investment (CNY) non-deliverable market which predates liberalisation of the renminbi. While non-deliverable instruments sometimes remain cheaper, the prices of deliverable instruments are converging rapidly as usage develops and are increasingly the tool of choice for hedging renminbi volatility. Daily volumes of non-deliverables are estimated at USD2-3 billion, including swaps and options.

    Onshore foreign exchange

    HSBC serves financial institutions who wish to transact on the onshore foreign exchange market – which has an estimated daily volume of USD75 billion – including swaps, options and spot. The bank also offers interest rate swaps with floating rate benchmarks based on the seven-day repo rate, Shanghai Inter-bank Offered Rate (Shibor) and CNY Depo.

    Note: Data above refers only to inter-bank market and all volumes are our estimate on inter-bank activities, as of March 2016 for onshore and February 2016 for offshore.

RMB Specific Risks for RMB Products: Help

Renminbi (RMB) is currently not freely convertible and conversion of RMB through banks in Hong Kong is subject to certain restrictions. Clients should be reminded of conversion risk in RMB products. In addition, there is a liquidity risk associated with RMB products, especially if such investments do not have an active secondary market and their prices have large bid/offer spreads. RMB products in Hong Kong are denominated and settled in RMB deliverable in Hong Kong, which represents a market which is different from that from that of RMB deliverable in Mainland China. For individual clients, conversion of RMB is subject to daily limit in Hong Kong, the clients may have to allow time for conversion of RMB from/to another currency of an amount exceeding the daily limit. Please refer to the offering documents of the respective RMB products for details, including risk factors.
