BlackRock Gets Chinese Approval for Mutual Fund Deals

BlackRock Gets Chinese Approval for Mutual Fund Deals

The approvals reflect the multiple routes available to foreign groups entering China and “position BlackRock to extend the breadth of its products and services and investment insights to all client segments across China”, the company said. China’s asset management market was worth Rmb121.6tn ($19tn) last year, according to Boston Consulting Group and China Everbright Bank. Recommended Since April 2020, foreign companies have been permitted to fully own mutual fund businesses in China, a shift from a previous requirement to operate through a joint venture with a local partner. JPMorgan is in the process of buying out its joint venture partner in its China mutual fund business.

“China is taking significant steps in opening up its financial markets,” said Larry Fink, BlackRock chair and chief executive officer. “We are honoured to be in a position in which we can support more Chinese investors access financial markets and build portfolios that can serve them throughout their lives”. Greater foreign participation has been spurred by Chinese government reforms related to liberalisation of the financial system. These have gathered momentum despite strained geopolitical relations between the US and China over the past year.

The go-ahead comes weeks after BlackRock received a separate approval for a wealth management venture with China Construction Bank, through which it will design investment products that will be distributed via local banks. The move followed a wave of activity from big US banks and asset managers as they seek to more fully integrate themselves into China’s financial system and take advantage of its vast pool of savings, which have historically been directed towards cash and property. 

Source www.ft.com Goldman Sachs last month announced it was partnering with ICBC, one China’s biggest banks with 680m retail customers, to launch a majority-owned wealth management venture. Amundi, the French asset manager, last year launched a partnership with Bank of China.

The country’s wealth management industry, which is dominated by a state-owned banking sector that is the largest in the world by assets, has also been subject to reforms to encourage foreign involvement as China seeks to develop its savings industry.  Greater foreign ownership is also permitted in sectors including mainland securities businesses, which are involved in underwriting debt and equity. Last week, JPMorgan applied to take full control of its securities joint venture, following a similar move by Goldman Sachs in December.
