Luxembourg is the leading centre for international bond listing. Approximately 80% of Eurobonds are issued in Luxembourg and the Luxembourg Stock Exchange (LuxSE) is the first listing place for bonds from international issuers.
The Luxembourg Stock Exchange was the first European stock exchange to issue a "Dim Sum Bond" in May 2011. Today the Luxembourg Stock Exchange already has a global market share of 20% for the listing of dim sum bonds, ranking Luxembourg third in the world after Hong Kong and Singapore.
Currently, 45 Dim Sum Bonds from 29 international issuers with a volume of 29.7bn RMB are listed on the Luxembourg Stock Exchange. Thus, the LuxSE is one of the leading listing places for RMB denominated bonds in Europe.
