We have worked with R5 for a long time, and in February supported all their marketing and PR activity related to the UK Prime Minister announcing the launch of their new service which connects banks in China with the London FX market.

Coverage included CNBC, Reuters, Profit & Loss, FX Week, MSN Money, GlobalRMB, The Express, Business Insider, Redback Reporter, Banking Technology, the Sunday Guardian, the OTC Space and numerous Chinese publications.

Using R5-SHCH Connect domestic banks in China now have access to the London FX market, recognised as the leading centre for global FX trading. The new service is a partnership between London's R5 and the Shanghai Clearing House, announced by UK Chancellor Philip Hammond in December as part of the 9th UK China Economic Dialogue.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May announced that the service was live whilst in Shanghai, as part of her first visit to China as Prime Minister. R5 was invited to join the delegation of British businesses on the Prime Minister's visit, which includes HSBC, LSE, BP, Standard Chartered and Standard Life Aberdeen.
