The team was led by finance partners William Ku in Hong Kong and Andrew Roberts in London.

Global Head of DCM Andrew Roberts said: "It was a pleasure working with Bank of China and HSBC on such an important transaction. It is notable because it is the first offshore RMB bond deal by the Ministry of Finance in the London market. The issue will further boost the international profile of the Renminbi and is another step in growth of London's offshore Renminbi market."
