29 Jan 2013

Bank of China (Hong Kong) Limited ("BOCHK") today announced that it is designated as a market maker for the USD/ CNH (offshore RMB) futures by the Chicago Mercantile Exchange ("CME") Group, being the sole bank among the first group of market makers.

These physically deliverable contracts will start trading on the CME Globex electronic trading platform on 25 February 2013. The contracts offer nearly 24-hour a day access to investors from anywhere in the world for grasping investment opportunities in the fast-changing CNH market, providing them with greater flexibility to manage their RMB exposure and funding costs.

Mr David Wong See Hong, Deputy Chief Executive of BOCHK, said, "BOCHK has been taking a leading role in the development of the offshore RMB business. We are pleased to be the first bank designated as a market maker for the new USD/ CNH futures and will be committed to providing transparent and competitive markets for these contracts to help facilitate the global usage of RMB funds."

As the leader in the offshore RMB market, BOCHK has taken the lead by launching RMB deliverable forward contract and interest rate swap for investors and institutions to hedge currency and interest rate exposure while effectively managing the related risks. By leveraging the global service network of its parent, Bank of China, BOCHK will continue to expand its RMB product suite through innovation, providing total solutions to investors as well as corporate and personal customers.
