AFIG is wholly owned by Hong Kong-based Capital Link International Holdings Ltd (CLI), a registered holding company with assets in media, indices, and financial products. These assets, coupled with CLI’s extensive experience and relationships in Asia’s financial markets, create a unique global platform for integrated product creation, communication, and distribution capabilities.
CLI launched its media platform and its first index, the China Bond CMB 50 Index, in April 2020 after recognising that there is no single institutional gateway to China’s capital markets and, more specifically, to its corporate bond market. This bond market, now worth US$14 trillion, is the world’s second biggest but is largely unknown, inaccessible and untouched by foreign investors.
