王雷(Rani Jarkas):人民币国际化改善全球货币体系

去年11月30日,随着国际货币基金组织宣布人民币获准加入特别提款权货币篮子中国正在推进的全球化努力又取得了新的里程碑。国际货币基金组织新上任的副总裁张涛评价道,人民币的加入不仅帮助中国自身的金融改革,并且对国际金融体系也起到了至关重要的作用。

赛德思投资董事长王雷(Rani Jarkas)在亚洲有多年的金融投资经验。他表示:“根据我们最新的预测,人民币国际化重大进程即将迎来开端。人民币将和其他货币一较高下,最终成为主要货币,并对全球货币体系产生深远的影响。”

全球银行间金融电信协会(SWIFT)数据显示目前人民币已成为第二大贸易融资货币,以及第四或第五大贸易支付货币。人民币占到全球贸易总量的8%和全球贸易支付总量的近2%。

国际清算银行统计显示人民币在全球外汇交易所占的份额在过去三年内翻了一番,从2%上涨到4%。并且其占全球储备货币的份额也提升至1%以上。
