Stable start to 2015 for China’s financial market

(8 May 2015 – China)  The People’s Bank of China (PBoC) reported the first three months of the financial market was generally stable for 2015.

In March bond issuance volume increased both year-on-year and month-on-month; transactions volume on the money market increased measurably as did the daily average volume of spot bond transactions.

The interbank bond index declined, but the PBoC said the Treasury bond index on the exchange market rose slightly.

January through March 2015, bond market issuance totalled RMB3.0 trillion (A$6075 billion), up 39.0 percent year-on-year.

Among this total, issuance volume on the interbank bond market posted 2.9 trillion yuan, up 38.6 percent year on year.

In the bond holding of inter-bank market investors, the share of commercial banks decreased 0.1 percentage point from the end of 2014 to 63.7 percent at end March.

The share of non-bank financial institutions was 10.9 percent, basically the same as the end of 2014; and the combined share of non-legal-person institutional investors and other investors increased 0.1 percentage point to 25.4 percent.

In the holding of corporate debenture bonds, the share of commercial banks, non-bank financial institutions, non-legal-person institutional investors and other investors was 44.0 percent, 13.4 percent, 40.1 percent and 2.5 percent respectively at end March.
