What do the acronyms “CNY” and “CNH” mean, and how are they different?

The acronym “CNY” is the official currency code for the lawful currency of the People’s Republic of China and refers to onshore RMB funds. CNY products in offshore markets are non-deliverable (i.e. no physical settlement in RMB) due to regulatory exchange control. Meanwhile “CNH” is a generic name given to RMB traded outside mainland China and generally refers to offshore RMB funds. 

I don’t have RMB funding needs. Can offshore RMB financing still help lower my financing costs?

That depends entirely on the market at the time. For example, if you want to raise USD, in some instances it might be less costly for you to raise offshore RMB funds and a USD/RMB Cross-Currency Swap rather than straight USD financing. Please call us at (852) 2290 8068 for more information.

What experience do you have in offshore RMB funding?

We are one of the region’s leading underwriters of offshore RMB bonds, and have extensive experienced in arranging offshore RMB bonds for China, Hong Kong and Singapore corporate clients.  Most notably, in 2011 we were joint book runner on ICBC’s offshore RMB bond issuance, which was named the Best Offshore RMB Bond in 2011 by FinanceAsia. This offering was also the first Basel III-compliant instrument issued by a Hong Kong bank and the first subordinated bond issued in Hong Kong's offshore RMB market.
