Previously in April 2019, SSE and JPX inked for the first time the China-Japan ETF Connectivity Agreement, saying to cooperate in establishing the ETF connectivity mechanism between the Chinese and Japanese capital markets.
Specifically, the two sides agreed that the Chinese and Japanese ETF providers would respectively establish cross-border ETFs through the existing qualified domestic institutional investors (QDII) and qualified foreign institutional investors (QFII) mechanisms, and invest all the fund assets or most of them in the representative ETFs listed in the other market, according to news released by SSE on its website on April 22, 2019.
By far, the first batch of products under the China-Japan ETF connectivity mechanism recorded stable market running and sound returns, bearing witness to the enormous potential of cooperation between the capital markets of China and Japan.
For the next step, SSE and JPX vowed to carry on the cooperation and win-win spirit as reflected by the China-Japan ETF connectivity mechanism and explore opportunities to deepen communication over science- and innovation-driven industries, real estate investment trusts (REITs) market and sustainable finance in a bid to extend cooperation between the capital markets of China and Japan.
