- 2Q16, China, mutual fund
Quarterly Assessment (2Q16)
Shifting regulatory winds and new industry-wide trends began to visibly shape the competitive landscape last quarter. All of these changes are happening against a backdrop of unprecedented access to the Chinese mutual fund market, now the largest in Asia.
This report looks in depth at how the large volume of institutional capital flowing into the mutual fund sector should continue shaking up the competitive landscape: satisfying this demand was key to success in Q2. We also analyze the impact of coming regulations that would place capital requirements on FMC subsidiaries. The resulting hefty cash calls will hit not only domestic firms, but also a significant number of Sino-foreign joint ventures. We look in depth at the products which will likely be affected.
New or improved investment programs and the beginnings of majority foreign ownership will create both opportunities and challenges for foreign firms growing their business onshore. The themes covered in this issue will dictate firm-level achievements (or failures) for the rest of the year, if not beyond.
