ATC SBAI Joint Event 2020



Chinese capital market has provided a significant stream of alpha for global asset allocators. Many leading global investors have accessed Chinese market by allocating to Chinese managers with the offshore operation. The recently announced new QFII scheme allows qualified global investors to invest in onshore private funds, tapping into the onshore investment capabilities as well.

This 3rd ATC-SBAI joint annual event, to be delivered online due to the pandemic, will again bring together leading investors, managers and other key market players together to discuss the latest development in China alternative investment sector, with a focus on the regulatory difference between onshore and offshore market and how that affects the investor-manager relationship.
