The new trading channel by MarketAxess will allow global investors to access the China Interbank Bond Market (CIBM) under the Bond Connect and CIBM Direct schemes.
Expanded Bond Connect link with CFETS will allow mainland China institutional investors to invest in Hong Kong’s fixed income markets from 24 September.
The CIBM-Direct RFQ tool from Bloomberg and the CFETS aims to further facilitate global investors trading onshore Chinese bonds.
Refinitiv has added data from the China Foreign Exchange Trade System to its Eikon and Elektron platforms.
Bloomberg claims position as the first platform connected to CFETS to offer global investors access to the CIBM Direct and Bond Connect initiatives.
