About ATC Initiative
The capital market of China, the second-largest economy in the world, is increasingly opening up. Global index providers have included China equities and bonds into their indices, while Chinese regulators have substantially improved the market access for global asset managers and institutional investors. Meanwhile, leading Chinese institutional investors and asset managers are also aspiring to expand their footprint overseas. Pensions and insurance companies are increasing their global asset allocation. Chinese local fund managers have been active in diversifying their portfolio and attracting global clients.
Allocate to China (“ATC”) Initiative is a research-based communication and solution platform bringing together global investors, asset managers and other stakeholders to share insights about China capital market, to build business relations and to form partnership.
ATC helps global investors and international asset managers to gain an in-depth understanding of various asset classes, market sectors and institutional investor community in China, as well as Chinese regulatory system regarding access channels, onshore business presence, client development, etc.
ATC also provides a platform for Chinese asset managers to demonstrate their capability to global investors, build an international brand, navigate the complicated European regulatory system and gain access to the European distribution network.
Working closely with global investors and asset managers, we identify key investment themes in relation to China capital market and develop them into workstreams. We organize focus group meetings, investor-manager dialogues, roundtable discussions and other formats of communication sessions to facilitate insight contribution from different stakeholders for each workstream. The outcomes of these well-researched workstreams will be presented to the wider investment community, the regulators and the media, in a variety of formats.
Current workstreams include:
- China pension reform and the opportunities it brings;
- ESG investment in China;
- Digital technology application in China asset management industry;
- Alpha generation in China’s private market investment, etc.
