B-shares refer to the RMB-denominated special shares with their par values marked in RMB in their circulation and to be subscribed and traded in Hong Kong Dollars. The trading of B-shares was launched in 1992, giving foreign investors the access to China’s equity market. Since China’s entry into the WTO, domestic investors were also allowed to invest in B-shares using foreign currencies.
