RMB &GBP Clearing




The move towards RMB internationalisation began in 2010 and continues to accelerate.  The growth in RMB trade settlement and issuance of RMB denominated bonds has created new liquidity channels and market depth in both the onshore (CNY) and offshore (CNH) markets.

The CNY and CNH markets remain separate, however, onshore CNY can be converted into offshore CNH through a variety of routes that have been opened through the RMB internationalisation process.

The CNH market is the most visible with rapid growth in the development of CNH products and global RMB centres alongside Hong Kong such as Taiwan and Singapore.


The increased liquidity and market depth is encouraging financial institutions and their clients to look for new financing, investment and risk management opportunities and enables banks to support their clients’ RMB business both in and outside of China.


As a result of this increased activity, SWIFT (global payment solution) shows that RMB is now the 8th most traded currency in the world with a 1.49% market share in August 2013 and that since January 2012, the RMB FX trading has increased by 113%.
