"This is the most complete report on investment funds and money management in China today. For anyone interested in learning about the past and future of China's investment management field, this is the best source. Highly recommended."
Mark Mobius President, Franklin Templeton Investments
This timely book by Stuart Leckie and Tony Zhang is the most up to date and comprehensive review of the Chinese investment funds and money management industry.
With China's entry into the World Trade Organization now a reality, this book provides an insider's look at the current state of investment funds in China and the roadmap ahead for what some experts have claimed will become a US$1 trillion market by the end of this decade.
New market entrants will find this book a definitive and essential source of information. For seasoned veterans operating in China for many years, the book captures the latest developments, statistics and market information in one easy, insightful text.
"This book contains a useful compendium of the main strands of development of investing in the Chinese domestic capital markets. I congratulate Mr. Leckie, plus Mr. Zhang, for yet another useful tome for the practitioner and the general reader interested in the developing markets in China."
Anthony Neoh Chief Advisor, China Securities Regulatory Commission
