  •  China equity and bonds inclusion: China access channels have been key to MSCI’s decision to include China A Shares in their EM index and inclusion is also expected on the fixed income side. We will discuss recent developments in relation thereto and Europe’s appetite for active and passive China-centric products.
  • Belt and Road Initiative: China has been investing massively in infrastructure along the former land and maritime Silk Road. We will discuss the stance in Europe regarding the BRI, as well as structuring and financing aspects of these projects in Luxembourg including the use of green finance. A number of concrete examples of the use of the Luxembourg toolbox for BRI projects will be discussed.
  • Reforming and opening of the Chinese financial sector: The China asset management sector is in transition with a number of reforms impacting asset management and at the same time is opening up to foreign managers which can nos create private fund management companies or hold the majority of their JVs in China. We will discuss these changes, the options available to global managers and trends in relation thereto.
