China editorial: Primary impact

The right approach to investing in China involves considering whether investors should make a separate allocation to the country. In our Inside View, a Mercer consultant argues that investors are missing out if they don’t.

Investors may now consider how they approach China’s ESG theme. China is a pioneer when it comes to developing climate solutions – but most of this investment is in secondary markets.

As our roundtable discussion hears, this is vastly different to making investments in the primary market in order to reap returns – and effect change – by, for example, lending directly to a renewable energy company to increase its solar capacity.

Also in this report, we look at the recent regulatory clampdown on certain sectors, including tech and education.
