Euroclear Bank to settle transactions in Chinese Renminbi

Euroclear Bank announces today that clients will be able to settle transactions and deposit Eurobonds and Hong Kong domestic securities denominated in the Chinese Yuan Renminbi (CNY, often referred to as RMB) in Euroclear Bank, the international central securities depository.

The first transactions in Renminbi may be settled on 27 September.

Olivier Grimonpont, Regional Head and General Manager of the Euroclear Bank branch office in Hong Kong, said: "With a consistent presence in Asia since 1987 and a comprehensive operations centre in Hong Kong, Euroclear Bank is ideally positioned to support the booming Renminbi- denominated securities market. As offshore borrowers look to raise funding in Renminbi or to broaden their investor base, investors will be able to settle these transactions in Euroclear Bank and eliminate foreign-exchange risk by having to settle in alternative currencies. The steady supply of Renminbi Eurobond issues to date, with ever-increasing sizes and tenors, demonstrates a growing market appetite for these securities. Euroclear Bank aims to take an early and significant role in servicing these securities for issuers and investors alike."

According to the People's Bank of China, the volume of global trade settled in Renminbi has grown from 3.6 billion in the first half of 2009 to 70.6 billion in the first half of 2010. The People's Bank of China and the Hong Kong Monetary Authority recently reached an agreement for the offshore Renminbi business to be supported in Hong Kong.

The Yuan Renminbi is the 53rd settlement currency offered by Euroclear Bank.
