Deutsche Bank facilitates margin trading and securities borrowing transaction

for offshore investor under the new QFII/RQFII scheme

On December 29, Deutsche Bank (China) Co., Ltd. (“Deutsche Bank China”) successfully facilitated a margin trading and securities borrowing transaction under the new measures for the administration of domestic securities and futures investments by Qualified Foreign Institutional Investors and RMB Qualified Foreign Institutional Investors (“The new rules”). Following the announcement of the new rules by China Securities Regulatory Commission on November 1, 2020, China Securities Depository and Clearing Corporation Limited officially opened the application and registration channel for margin securities accounts on December 28, 2020.

Deutsche Bank China supported a qualified foreign investor as its China onshore custodian bank with a full suite of custody services including account opening, asset custody, cash transfer and regulatory reporting, and helped in completing a smooth transaction on the first trading day of margin trading and securities borrowing under the new rules.

Tony Chao, Head of Securities Services Greater China and Head of Securities Services Sales in North Asia at Deutsche Bank, said: “The opening of margin trading and securities borrowing through the QFII/RQFII scheme expands the investment product scope and increases the diversification of investment strategies available to foreign investors. It also helps in improving fund efficiency, providing investors with greater flexibility to investment strategies and portfolio execution.”

“It is our great pleasure to facilitate margin trading and securities borrowing for our client on the first trading day under the new rules. After recently receiving our China domestic fund custody license, this transaction is another testimony of our strong capabilities in securities services with a well-aligned offering for local and cross-border business.”

Stanley Song, Head of Deutsche Bank Securities Services China, added: “Against the backdrop of China’s continuous and steady market opening, foreign investors are increasingly looking for China market investments. As one of the leading global custodian banks, we will continue to leverage our global expertise and deep understanding of the local market to provide relevant and efficient services to our clients and help them to seize the rising opportunities in the China market.”
