EUR/CNH Futures

The growing importance and mutual recognition of the European Union (EU) and China as major trading partners have created rising demand for capital-efficient risk management tools to hedge Renminbi (RMB) currency risk against Euro (EUR). Furthermore, one of the China’s RMB exchange rate reforms is the development of a managed float regime with reference to a basket of currencies, including the EUR. Against that backdrop, HKEX’s EUR/CNH futures provide transparency in price discovery reflecting exchange rate expectations driven by market forces.
