The agreement was signed in Beijing by Gui Minjie, Chairman of Shanghai Stock Exchange, Carsten Kengeter, CEO of Deutsche Börse AG, and Zhang Shenfeng, Chairman of China Financial Futures Exchange, in the presence of the Chinese Premier Li Keqiang and the German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
The establishment of CEINEX is an outcome of the Chinese-German high-level financial market dialogue which started in March 2015.
CEINEX will offer investment products based on Chinese underlyings to international investors, starting with cash market products like ETFs and bonds. All cash market instruments will be tradable via Xetra, Deutsche Börse’s established cash marketplace with approximately 200 participants.
CEINEX is the first dedicated platform for authorised RMB-denominated trading outside mainland China – offering attractive new trading opportunities to trade Chinese products in an efficient manner to further supporting RMB internationalisation.
The company is based in Frankfurt. The management board comprises senior officers and professionals from the three exchanges. ■
