Global Asset Management & Investment
China Summit 2013
19th—20th, June, 2013 Shanghai, China
The Chinese Government, while easing regulations, lowering entry barriers, expanding the investment scope and stepping up measures to internationalize the RMB, is creating more opportunities for foreign asset managers who are eager to invest in this fast-growing market and desire to gain first-mover advantage. Under such rapid changes of market development programs, foreign participants have been allowed to have ever-greater scope and flexibility in their operations in China. QFII, RQFII and QDII – China’s formal programs for cross-border investment – have all been expanded dramatically over the past year.
Furthermore, new programs to encourage pension fund allocation, insurance investment and cooperation between financial institutions have all been boosted, providing foreign
asset management companies with new and potentially material institutional business prospects. Finally, overseas financial institutions can now complement their representative offices with wholly Owned Foreign enterprises (WOFEs), 100%-owned businesses offering enormous operational flexibility and the chance to take a direct role in China’s ongoing internationalization of capital flows.
On the other hand, this new environment has also forced a hard truth on all foreign asset mangers. China efforts can no longer be managed by remote control. This market has been too complicated to be clearly addressed by flying in C-suite officials, business leaders and industry experts. To take full advantage of the rewards China offers, constant, detailed and on-the-ground research and networking are extremely necessary.
Against this backdrop, Annual Global Asset Management & Investment China 2013 will invite senior executives and experts all over the world including banks, securities, funds, insurances, trusts, futures, PEs, VCs, and other asset management related companies to jointly discuss the most pressing industry issues and strategies for future sustainable development and exploit more high-yield investment opportunities.
