1 Corporate and Investment Banking Trading in Chinese Renminbi

2 Trading in Chinese Renminbi Standard Bank your trade partner in, for and across Africa Trade and payment solutions using renminbi As China-Africa ties continue to mature, substantially altering the make-up of Africa s political and economic environment, China has front-row tickets to the continent s development. The Standard Bank Group, as a trusted service provider, has the capability to support your requirements in trading and bridging the gap with China using the renminbi. The renminbi (RMB) is the official currency of the People s Republic of China. Since Chinese authorities started developing the renminbi as a currency of international trade, it has been growing in circulation in global markets. Although still regulated the renminbi is being promoted by the Chinese government as legal tender in deals with foreign companies and institutions. While not considered a major currency in terms of volume at this time, the renminbi s projected growth as a currency of trade is considerable. As the currency s global activity grows, it will have an enormous impact on the way business is done in Africa, since China is one of its largest trading partners. 3

3 Trading in Chinese Renminbi Until recently, all payments to Chinese companies were made in US dollars, which added complexity and risk to any transaction. Now that RMB is acceptable as a currency of global trade, the Standard Bank Group is well positioned to facilitate the clearing thereof. The Standard Bank Group was one of the first financial institutions to recognise and focus on the growing relationship between Africa and Asia. Our relationship with Asia, and with China in particular, is underscored by our close ties with the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China, which holds a 20% stake in the Standard Bank Group. As the largest banking group in Africa, we are well placed to provide payment clearing and trade settlements in the domiciled currency of mainland China through a centralised solution designed to meet your requirements. A growing suite of RMB solutions Financial institutions The Standard Bank Group provides a facility for financial institutions looking for an RMB settlement solution for their clients in Africa. The facility can also be used to sell currency, hedge currency risks and provide leverage for short-term funding at low rates. African importers and exporters The Standard Bank Group allows African importers and exporters to settle Chinese trade deals directly in RMB, reducing foreign currency translation risk, aiding price negotiations, promoting price transparency and providing access to lower-cost funding. Chinese importers and exporters The Standard Bank Group s direct RMB settling facility reduces the need for a pricing buffer against currency fluctuations, lessens the cost of international trade, reduces the need for hedging and promotes the use of renminbi as a trade currency in line with the Chinese government s national strategy. Investors The Standard Bank Group provides access to a range of RMB (onshore renminbi traded in mainland China) investment assets such as foreign exchange, money market products, term deposits and bonds. The renminbi market is an attractive investment option both from an appreciation and diversification perspective. Benefits of using the Standard Bank Group s centralised RMB capabilities Payments and trade settlements can be initiated on existing channels in RMB, giving you the option of dealing with your Chinese partners in their native currency and aligning with China s national promotion of the use of renminbi Importers can receive payment in renminbi, making it easier for Chinese exporters to do business with you RMB clearing through a centralised solution for cash management, payments, trade and client services Direct settlement in RMB reduces foreign currency translation risk 4 5

4 Access to RMB loans helps to reduce the cost of funding by improving your working capital cycle and shortening your cash conversion cycle Foreign currency revenue and cash flows are easier to manage The diversification of Foreign Exchange (FX) exposure lessens the impact of USD exchange rate fluct.
