Opportunities and Challenges in China's Asset Management Sector to Be Discussed 
at Fifth Wee Cho Yaw Singapore-China Finance and Banking
SHANGHAI, CHINA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/24/13 --  The latest
developments in China's asset management sector and the implications
for asset managers and investors in Asia, particularly China and
Singapore, are set to be discussed at the upcoming fifth Wee Cho Yaw
Singapore-China Finance and Banking Forum.  
To be held in Shanghai on 31 July 2013 at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel
Pudong, the Forum is organised by the National University of
Singapore (NUS) Business School's Centre for Asset Management
Research and Investments (CAMRI) with the aim of fostering a deeper
understanding among industry professionals and scholars of the
challenges and opportunities in the finance sectors of China and
The Forum, themed 'China's Asset Management Industry: The
Opportunities and Challenges,' will be moderated by Professor Joseph
Cherian, Director of CAMRI at NUS Business School. The event will
feature expert panellists including Professor Anthony Neoh, Dean's
Visiting Professor at NUS Business School and former Chief Adviser,
China Securities Regulatory Commission; Dr Qian Jun, Chief Executive
Officer, Hwabao Trust; Ms Jasmine Lim, Deputy General Manager, Ping
An UOB Fund Management Company; Mr Peter Alexander, Managing
Director, Z-Ben Advisors; and Mr Huang Jingsheng, Partner, TPG Growth
and RMB Funds. 
Key topics that will be discussed at the Forum include the
liberalisation and exponential growth of assets under management in
China; future trends and the fiduciary obligations; China's Qualified
Foreign Institutional Investor (QFII) and Renminbi Foreign
Institutional Investor (RFII) programmes; and the alignment and
rationalisation of trust, insurance and other companies offering
asset management products.  
Professor Cherian explained: "Following the phenomenal growth in
fiduciary and private assets under management in China, and the
recent announcement by the People's Bank of China (PBOC) naming
Singapore as the first regional financial centre outside China to
have a yuan-clearing bank, many new opportunities have arisen for
both countries' banks and asset managers. China's regulatory
environment and policies are also rapidly modernising to keep pace
with the country's development. This Forum provides an important
platform for understanding the latest trends in asset management in
the two countries in particular, and Asia in general." 
The Wee Cho Yaw Singapore-China Finance and Banking Forum was
established in 2008 with a S$3 million donation from the
then-Chairman of United Overseas Bank (UOB), Dr Wee Cho Yaw, and his
family. The inaugural Forum was held in Beijing in August 2010 in
conjunction with the 20th anniversary celebration of diplomatic
relations between Singapore and China.  
Since then, the venue of the annual event has alternated between the
two countries. The Wee Cho Yaw Singapore-China Finance and Banking
Forum was last held in Singapore in 2012 with the theme of 'The
Internationalisation of the Renminbi.'  
This year, the half day Forum features a panel discussion session and
question-and-answer session. Industry professionals are welcome to
attend. More information about the Forum can be found at
