Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect was seen as a game changer for Chinese markets, allowing open access to China’s largest exchange for the first time. This was quickly followed by Shenzhen Stock Exchange, home to many more small, dynamic companies that become part of the scheme. Recently, MSCI has partially included China, offering passive investors exposure to Mainland Chinese companies. This panel will examine the Stock Connect phenomenon, how it’s structured, who gets access, how it works, and what can be expected next.

With the advent of stock connect, it was only a matter of time before a greater opening of the fixed income markets would be added to the agenda of Chinese authorities. A number of schemes have been introduced or existing ones relaxed to encourage greater investment in what is now the third largest bond market in the world.
