A Financial Times Service
China Confidential - Premium Investment Insight

13 January 2012

The smart money last year did not go into equity funds, money market funds or bond funds. Considerable amounts of it, however, did find a profitable home in Private Equity and Venture Capital funds.

The Internet, biotech, healthcare and clean technology were the leading recipients of PE & VC money in 2011. Returns for the best performers were highly attractive - and insurance companies, securities companies, banks and even high net worth individuals queued up for a piece of the action.

In other sections we also look at:

- How leading fund managers are tailoring strategies for 2012.

- Big existential questions for the QDII programme after another dismal year.

- Why a leading policy maker thinks Beijing will make several cuts to the bank required reserve ratio in 2012.

- How QFII is taking a new lease on life as Beijing seeks to attract overseas money.
