Chinese Capital Markets
The Internationalisation of the Chinese currency, the Renminbi (RMB), will, over time, see China’s financial relations with the rest of the world broaden and deepen to match China’s trade relations and the size of its economy. Associated with this will be significant changes in the type, volume, currency denomination and location of financial flows and financial activity around the world. The process of China's internationalisation is not only a rich research area but has the potential to shape international capital markets for decades to come.
