GAM - Chinese equities: Review and Outlook

Chief Investment Director and manager of GAM Star China Equity shares his views on the recent Chinese stock market turmoil.

Reforms happening at a faster pace than expected

While the slide in China’s mainland stock market* is dominating headlines, investors should remember that the long-term story for China is one of reform. Actions by the state, despite short-term policy errors such as the one that caused July’s market sell-off, reflect China’s desire to implement financial and structural reforms to boost long-term growth, and these are occurring at a much faster pace than anyone could have anticipated.


* Companies that trade on mainland Chinese stock exchanges such as the Shanghai and Shenzhen stock exchanges issue shares known as ‘A Shares’. A-shares are generally only available for purchase by mainland citizens; foreign investment is allowed through the Qualified Foreign Institutional Investor (QFII) system.
