Dim sum bond

Dim sum bonds are bonds issued outside of China but denominated in Chinese renminbi, rather than the local currency. They are named after dim sum, a popular style of cuisine in Hong Kong.[1]

The first dim sum bond was issued by the China Development Bank in July 2007.[2] Until July 2010, only Chinese and Hong Kong banks could issue renminbi-denominated bonds;[1] deregulation led to the development of an offshore market in renminbi and the internationalization of dim sum bonds.[3] The bonds became more popular as foreign companies sought yuan-denominated assets as the renminbi appreciated in 2011. Although the major market for dim sum bonds is Hong Kong, China Construction Bank became the first Chinese Bank to issue a renminbi denominated bond in London in November, 2012. This followed similar issues by non-Chinese banks like ANZ, HSBC and Banco do Brasil earlier in the year.

35.7 billion yuan in dim sum bonds were issued in 2010 and 131 billion in 2011.[4]

The first foreign-issued dim sum bond by a nonfinancial company was announced in August 19, 2010 and issued in September 16, 2010 by McDonald's.[1] On 5 November 2013, British Columbia finance minister Mike de Jong reported a successful placement of Chinese RMB$2.5bn in dim sum bonds, listed January 14th 2014 on the Luxembourg Stock Exchange.[5] The issue was five times oversubscribed.
