Information Update Form
To continually optimise our investors' experience with added efficiency, Bond Connect has now incorporated the "Bond Connect Registration Update Form" into the E-Filing system to replace manual submission. The Registration Update Form allows onboarded Bond Connect investors to register changes related to asset managers, custodian banks, e-trading platforms, trading execution entity, traders and any other miscellaneous information update.

Specifically, if the intended changes relate to a switch in asset management entity or a revision of the asset management entity name or fund name, applicants are required to submit an Information Update Statement.

Bond Connect has now incorporated the "Exit Form" into the E-Filing system to replace manual submission. After confirming completion of relevant matters, CFETS shall close the accounts, process the market exit and inform the investor via BCCL.
