China-Europe Financial Markets Forum Highlights 20th Euro Finance Week

CEINEX announces D-Share market start for 2018

Frankfurt / Germany, November 20, 2017 – The 2nd CEINEX Financial Markets Forum was filled with senior experts from finance, industry and politics from Europe and China and highlighted the 20th EURO FINANCE WEEK, Europe’s largest meeting point for the finance and insurance industry taking place in Frankfurt/Germany. The Frankfurt based China Europe International Exchange (CEINEX) brought the European and the Chinese capital markets further together in support of deepened cooperation with the real economy, in particular the advanced manufacturing industry. Closely followed by 300 guests in Room Harmony of the Congress Center almost 30 high-level international experts shared their insights and debated current topics in financial markets and Sino-European/German real and macro-economic relations in four sessions and three keynote speeches.

Experienced experts and senior management from European and Chinese government departments, regulators, enterprises, financial institutions and intermediaries as well as researchers covered the most relevant global topic for future development by intensively discussing the financial connectivity along the Belt & Road Initiative. How the finance sector can support the cooperation of the real economy was debated also under the light of “Made in China 2025” and “Industry 4.0”. In a multi-level approach that includes debt as well as equity financing, options mentioned were to issue bonds in the CEINEX market place or to become part of the CEINEX D-Share market. Panelists and guests welcomed the announcement by Dr. CHEN Han, Co-CEO CEINEX, about the launch of the D-Share market in 2018, where China A-Share listed companies will issue stocks in Frankfurt under European rules and regulations, making the Chinese stock market better accessible for international investors. In the morning sessions an outlook on the Chinese-European M&A market was given and substantiated by successful real business experiences from Chinese companies investing into the European market. The first session underlined the internationalization of the Renminbi and how it could change international trade and business relations.

Dr. CHEN Han, Co-Chief Executive Officer CEINEX, commented: “In conferences such as the CHINA DAY – CEINEX Financial Markets Forum international market participants, researchers and policy makers as well as politicians get together for intense discussions and public exchange. CEINEX is proud to successfully have arranged the “2nd CEINEX Financial Markets Forum” and together with our partners shape the future of the cooperation of the financial markets and the real economy. Many Chinese companies are going out for international business, seeking partners globally. This creates the need for more diversified financial services. Banks, intermediaries and other financial services shall develop multiple financial connectivity levels to serve the real economy. CEINEX brings these participants from finance and real economy together and develops innovative products to support them: In 2018 we will have the first global industry leading Chinese blue chip A-Share companies starting the D-Shares listing in Frankfurt on the CEINEX market place. “D” stands for Deutschland, and for Déguó, the word for Germany in Chinese.”
