China To Lift Limitations On Overseas Ownership In The Financial Industry

Reportedly, China is moving ahead with making ways for its financial industry to offshore ownership in the middle of concerns that China and the U.S. can develop further apart owing to persistent trade worries. The CSRC (China Securities Regulatory Commission) released a deadline for removing constraints to overseas stakes in a mutual fund, futures, and securities firms. The plan—which is set to kick-off in January—will present foreign companies full ownership. In the last year, the commission started to allow some overseas financial entities to surge their minority stake in a majority 51%.

In a statement, spokesperson for Invesco stated, “Chinese regulators persist to move ahead with constructive reformations to the national funds’ management landscape. This new announcement augments competition and allows all market players to bring powerful offerings to the Chinese marketplace.” One of the U.S. protests in trade concerns with China is that several Chinese firms are closed to offshore firms or are influenced by state-led entities, making it tough for American firms to contest on even ground with their Chinese equivalents. The spat amid the world’s two biggest economies has augmented pressure on cross-border business through the application of taxes on billions of dollars’ valued goods from both nations.

On a related note, Singapore Forbes forum stated the U.S. and China are set to “decouple” in the midst of their clash of civilizations. The world’s two largest powerhouses appear to ready for “decoupling,” panelists at a national conference in Singapore asserted, as they painted a subdued image of the future along with high-level conciliations amid China and the sort out a deal on tariffs. This process will not just halt at investment and trade, cautioned Ho Kwon Ping—Executive Chairman of Banyan Tree Holdings—but will extend to areas like intellectual property.
