Thirty Years Of China's Capital Markets

The changing makeup of investors

Date: December 8, 2020 | 9:00 - 10:00 GMT


December 2020 marks 30 years since the creation of both Shanghai Stock Exchange and Shenzhen Stock Exchange. Between them, there are approximately 4,100 listed companies with a target market capitalization of about RMB77,244 billion. The pace of change and growth in Chinese capital markets is unparalleled and international participation and interest in these markets continues to also grow at a rapid pace.

To mark this auspicious year for China’s two major exchanges, London Stock Exchange Group is delighted to bring together international experts to share views and insights into China’s capital markets. Ray Chou, Partner of Oliver Wyman’s Financial Services Practice, is invited to join one of the webinar series - China's capital markets: The changing makeup of investors.

With a high percentage of retail participation in capital markets, the composition of investors in China is unique but it is also changing. The webinar is to discuss whether retail investors will continue to be the dominant force in Chinese investing or whether the future will bring more institutional investors to the forefront? It will also consider whether increased demand by investors for high quality data, particularly ESG data will be the real driving force for change regardless of whether those investors are retail or institutional.
