Nearly 3 months after the launch of Bond Connect, ALFI and ABBL are pleased to invite you to a briefing session on Bond Connect.

We are extremely honoured to welcome keynote speakers from the Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) and the Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing (HKEX).

Along with CIBM Direct Access and the RQFII route, Bond Connect offers an additional channel to foreign institutional investors who wish to invest in the Chinese fixed-income market, now the third largest in the world.

Our keynote speakers will give participants first-hand information on the debut of Bond Connect, the legal and operational framework and what is coming next.

This event is specifically designed for specialists and users of Bond Connect.
