Senior executives of TMX Group visited China this week to meet with Chinese government officials and business leaders to further relationships in the region and the group’s global growth strategy. TMX Group signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Shanghai Clearing House, which builds on almost two years of collaboration between the two organizations. The two companies have worked together to support foreign institutional investor access to Chinese markets with the ultimate goal of creating an efficient linkage between North American and Chinese bond markets. TMX Group has also entered into an MOU with China Central Depository & Clearing Corporation to initiate a feasibility study of mutual access models, work together to increase mutual understanding, and evaluate future trade opportunities. TMX Group is based in Toronto, ON, and its key subsidiaries, including the Toronto Stock Exchange, operate cash and derivative markets and clearinghouses.
