New regulations: QFII and RQFII Accelerate Global Futures Trading

Recently, the China Shanghai Futures Exchange and its subsidiary the China Securities Regulatory Commission, the Zhengzhou Commodity Exchange, the Dalian Commodity Exchange, and the China Financial Futures Exchange issued announcements at the same time to clarify the products of futures and options in which RQFIIs (RMB Qualified Foreign Institutional Investors) and QFIIs (Qualified Foreign Institutional Investors) can participate in investment transactions. The first batch involved a total of 41 products. This marks another acceleration in the process of opening up China's futures market to the outside world.

New Regulation Implementation

The "Futures and Derivatives Law of the People's Republic of China" was officially implemented on August 1st, 2022. The announcement of 41 futures and options products is a further implementation of the policy. Datayes'data shows that the total number of futures options products in China reached 101 products as of August, of which only nine are accessible to the global market for circulation.

The head of Fortex pointed out that this policy not only provides a compliance channel for foreign funds to participate in investment and trading in the domestic futures and derivatives market but also allows Chinese futures products and futures institutions to go international and thus promote the integration of the global futures trading market.

According to the introduction, the 41 futures and options products include gold, silver, low-sulfur fuel oil, methanol, sugar, soybean meal, soybean oil, and other commodity futures, as well as copper, aluminum, zinc, methanol, sugar, and stock index options.
