The year 2018 has seen major breakthrough for the opening up of Chinese Futures Market as a key component of capital market opening-up. On 26 March 2018, the Shanghai International Energy Exchange ("INE") officially launched the listing and trading of the first RMB-denominated crude oil futures on a domestic futures exchange in China. Following that, iron ore futures was opened to international investors at the Dalian Commodity Exchange. Most recently, on Aug 31, CSRC has approved the Shanghai Futures Exchange (SHFE) to trade copper options. Aside from the internationalization of futures and options varieties, CSRC has also recently issued the Administrative Measures for Foreign-invested Futures Companies (the "Measures") on Aug 24,

The recent development of Chinese Futures Market is in alignment with the national strategies for boosting the real economy. It helps boost liquidity and forms transparent pricing for the bulk commodity market. Real economies could hedge risks for price fluctuations effectively through the derivatives market.

Kevin will elaborate on the recent opening-up of Chinese Futures Market and the prospect of real economies and financial institutions. Kevin will share his experience working with commercial enterprises taking advantage of more options available now for their raw material and commodity hedging needs. He will also address the new CSRC "Measures" and its impact. Following that, J-D will share his experience operating in the area of Commodities Exchange in the U.S., in particular, driving liquidity in new markets, benefits of liquid futures markets and hedging.
