The study was carried out by NTree International Ltd which has expertise in China’s asset classes – bonds, equities, and commodities, and the distribution of China-focused ETFs in Europe.

International investors currently own about 3% of China’s onshore bonds.  The research reveals that 17% of institutional investors predict that this will increase to 5% this year, with 35% and 32% expecting it to reach this in 2022 and 2023 respectively.

Three quarters (76%) of respondents agreed with the view that the expected increase in foreign investment in the Chinese fixed income market this year will be driven by monetary and fiscal policies in developed markets in relation to COVID-19, the continued growth in negative yields in Western fixed income markets and the fact that major bond indices are increasingly adding Chinese debt to their compositions.

The majority (80%) also agreed that there will be an improvement in liquidity, ease of trading and market access in the Chinese bond market over the next three years as it catches up with more developed markets. 

“The Chinese fixed income market is becoming more attractive as it matures and as investors look to new sources of yields.  The outlook is very positive for the asset class with significant inflows of foreign investment predicted.”


Timothy Harvey, CEO at NTree

When it comes to investing in Chinese funds, 77% of institutional investors expect China-based investment teams to have the edge over those based in the West.
