Buniness Update: foreigners can now invest in the Chinese stock market

Investing in China Mainland made easy through A-Share accounts

On August 15 this year the China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC) announced that it would further liberalize the right of expats to open A-share securities accounts. Eligible investors can now open A-share accounts and the policy was officially implemented on September 15, 2018.
A-Share securities are shares of China Mainland-based companies listed on the Shanghai and Shenzhen Stock Exchanges with shares only quoted in Chinese Renminmbi.
The investor’s country of origin must have established a regulatory corporation with the CSRC. To find out if your country has done so, visit https://csrc.gov.cn/pub/newsite/gjb/jghz
