China funds spur equity allocations

China funds spur equity allocations

For the next three months Chinese fund managers increased their suggested equity exposure because key indexes pierced major resistance, while market sentiment gained on further indications of an expanding Chinese economy, as a monthly Reuters survey revealed.

The recent market soar was spurred by sturdy corporate earnings, which have increased hopes that economic momentum are going to remain firm enough through the rest of 2017, thus defying analysts' hopes for a gradual slowdown.

Market sentiment was also backed by indications that Beijing is actually stepping up efforts to restructure China’s lumbering and usually inefficient state-owned enterprises by simply giving the green light to more public as well as private investment in the long-protected sector.

The fund managers increased their suggested equity allocations to about 76.9%, from the previous month’s outcome of 75%, according to a survey of eight China-based fund managers for this week.
