Regulatory reform in China in 2020 further opened its markets to overseas institutional investors. The removal of QFII and RQFII investment quotas, and the lifting of overseas ownership limits in the mutual fund sector have attracted foreign asset managers to set up WFOEs and apply for onshore mutual fund licenses.
Together with the quick economic recovery from the pandemic and relatively healthy returns from China A-shares, more institutional investors are looking to increase their exposure to Chinese equities. Yet the relationship between China and the US is still a major concern for investors. And no one is certain if the situation will improve under a Biden administration. Investors still struggle to manage and model the risk of the Chinese equity market, which might be fundamentally different from other major markets.
During this in-depth webinar, leading industry speakers will discuss how to standardise market risks and returns and examine:
- The dynamics and nuances of the Chinese equity market
- The dominance of China’s SOEs in the market and the impact of state vs private ownership on risk and return
- The distinct behaviors of the traditional risk factors in China and other major markets
- Other factors investors should take into account when investing in the Chinese equity market
- How to factor in the above tilts in risk modeling in a standardised way
Over the past two decades, the value of outstanding US dollar-denominated Emerging Markets (EM) corporate debt has increased by a factor of 20, to over $1.5 trillion – a larger asset pool even than US dollar EM sovereign debt, according to Bank of America Merrill Lynch. This growth has created unique opportunities for investors, particularly those rethinking their asset allocation and risk-reward profiles while seeking diversification and less correlated return streams.
In our upcoming webinar in partnership with Credit Suisse, our expert panel will address questions such as:
- During Covid-19, how well did EM corporate bonds perform and why?
- What are the key risk-reward factors that distinguish EM corporate from EM sovereign debt – and how are they influenced by historical default rates?
- How can EM corporate bond valuations create attractive investment opportunities in countries where sovereign ratings are relatively low?
- When does EM investment grade corporate debt offer an attractive alternative to developed market credit, vis-a-vis the underlying country exposures?
- Which unique considerations are relevant to EM bonds, particularly when it comes to transparency, governance and auditing?
