QFII Scheme

On November 5, 2002 the China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC) and the People’s Bank of China (PBOC) jointly issued the Provisional Measures on Administration of Domestic Securities Investments of Qualified Foreign Institutional Investors (the "QFII Regulation"), effective on December 1, 2002. The regulation is regarded as a monumental piece of legislation, which for the first time in China’s history allows foreign investors to invest and trade in domestic securities market.

In China, QFII is defined as any foreign fund management institutions, insurance companies, securities firms, and asset management companies. The QFII applicants have to meet the requirements stated in the QFII Regulation and obtain the approval from the CSRC and investment quota from the State Administration of Foreign Exchange (SAFE). Hong Kong, Macao, and Taiwan are also applicable regions of the regulation. Aside from qualitative requirements on QFII such as sound financial and credit status and no material sanctions by regulatory agencies within three years, etc, the qualifications of a QFII also include, more importantly, minimum assets under management and years of business operations.

For overseas investors, QFII (Qualified Foreign Institutional Investors) is the only way to invest in China RMB denominated A-shares. The financial instrument that QFII invest in China includes: RMB denominated A-shares; Treasury bonds, convertible bonds and corporate bonds listed on the Shanghai and Shenzhen stock exchanges; initial public offerings, rights and additional share issues; securities mutual funds; warrants traded on the Shanghai and Shenzhen stock exchanges and other products approved by the CSRC.

By September 2014, 269 foreign institutions were granted QFII licenses, amonng which 50 were from the US and Canada. At the same time, another 98 foreign institutions were granted RQFII licenses.
