The offshore market is a special part of China’s capital market. Due to limited convertibility of Chinese currency, domestic securities denominated and priced in foreign jurisdictions using fully convertible foreign currencies have long been the most recognizable Chinese assets in global capital markets.

Amid China’s dramatic economic growth over the past few decades, both supply and demand of Chinese assets surged. The offshore market allows Chinese companies to raise equity and debt capital overseas and enables international investors to easily gain exposure to China's exceptional growth potential.

China’s offshore market exhibits both greater volatility and attractive returns. Investing in China does bring different risks and greater unpredictability, as illustrated by authorities’ crackdowns on offshore-traded tech enterprises and the wave of defaults of offshore-issued property bonds.

In the sixth and last episode of “China Finance With a Cup of Tea,” Caixin invited Ms. Christina Bao, the Co-Head of Sales & Marketing at HKEX, and Mr. Kinger Lau, Chief China Equity Strategist at Goldman Sachs, to share their insights on what international investors should know about and how to navigate China’s offshore market.
