A Financial Times Service
China Confidential - Premium Investment Insight

09 June 2011

The national social security fund (NSSF), one of China's biggest sovereign wealth funds, appears set to offer more mandates to overseas funds.

The NSSF has balanced a mix of onerous obligations and special advantages to post strong returns over the past decade, but 2010 was not a banner year, raising the probability that the fund may look to award more mandates to external professionals.

In addition we look at:

■ QFII fund strategy in a tough Q1.

■ How even the domestic "star" managers have been hit.

■ How stress in the underground banks is rising.

■ Why regulatory utterances hold big promise.

■ Whether CITIC finally plans a big sale.
