AIMA Fund Manager Briefing: Accessing China – new developments for alternative asset managers
As a result of the changing regulatory landscape in China, it may become increasingly difficult for Chinese companies in certain sectors (including the tech sector) to be listed or remain listed abroad. Many of them may choose to list on the Chinese domestic stock exchanges instead. The need for foreign investors to gain direct access to the Chinese securities market becomes more evident.
How are the channels to invest in the Chinese securities market different? QFII, Stock Connect, Bond Connect... QFII stands out among those channels for many reasons. Now alternative investment firms have become eligible and many have joined.
As part of this presentation Allen & Overy will provide an overview of the regulatory framework of QFII, with a focus on the latest developments. The session will also explain the process, time and costs that may be needed to become a QFII and its associated risks.
