Together with China Construction Bank International Asset Management (CCBIAM), a subsidiary of China Construction Bank (CCB), Vontobel is the first provider to launch a financial product that enables investors to participate in the development of the Belt and Road Initiative. This cooperation provides access to CCBIAM's in-depth local investment expertise in the Chinese market.

The Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) represents the largest infrastructure and trade project in the world, covering some 119 countries and affecting around 65% of the world's population. Some 7,000 infrastructure projects are currently planned up to 2050. The realization of the BRI requires large investments from various sources of capital. China has already signed cooperation agreements with over 105 countries and provides liquid funds for project financing through its own state banks and funds.

As a globally active financial expert, Vontobel is launching tracker certificates on the “Vontobel Belt and Road Index, advised by CCBIAM”, for both private and institutional investors. The in-depth knowledge of the Chinese government's initiative and outstanding investment capabilities with local expertise enable CCBIAM to identify leading companies in various industries that could benefit from investment and stimulus in the context of the BRI. The certificate also gives investors indirect access to A-shares, which are traded in renminbi and listed on the Shanghai or Shenzhen stock exchange.

"We are confident that this will be the start of a long-term cooperation at various levels between Vontobel and CCB. I am particularly pleased that, as a specialist provider of investment products, we are playing a pioneering role with the launch of the index and the equity certificates based on it in Europe," said Roger Studer, Head of Vontobel Investment Banking.

Further information on the certificate and the Vontobel Belt and Road Index, advised by CCBIAM, is available on the information page at https://derinet.vontobel.com/CH/DE/Blog.
