China Alternative Market Seminar: Fixed Income and Digital Technology

Allocate to China (“ATC”) Initiative is a research-based communication platform bringing together global investors, asset managers and other stakeholders to share views and insights on various key themes relating to China capital market. The ATC Initiative event series is hosted by its Strategic Partners on a rotational basis in key financial centres.

Standards Board for Alternative Investments (SBAI) is a standard-setting body for the alternative investment industry and custodian of the Alternative Investment Standards. The SBAI provides a powerful mechanism for creating a framework of transparency, integrity and good governance which improves how the alternative investment industry operates, facilitates investor due diligence and complements public policy.

This joint event in Shanghai brings global investors and asset managers into a discussion on two trendy themes: 1, the open-up of China’s bond market and the opportunity this brings to global investors; 2, the adoption of digital technology (AI, big data, etc) in asset management globally and in China market. The event aims to facilitate deep professional dialogue between global investors who have an increasing interest in the China market and asset managers who have real expertise and insight to share.
