The China miracle emanates from the economic reforms since 1978. After more than three decades of significant growth, China has attracted enormous attention as the most dynamic, complex and fast-changing economy in the world. The investment funds sector reached a peak in 2007 and then unexpectedly shrunk thereafter.
The University of Glasgow Adam Smith Business School was pleased to welcome Stuart Leckie, OBE, who will gave a lecture on Investment Funds in China. The Lecture described and explained the changing financial markets and asset management arena in China. The reasons for the decline, the current state of the industry and a possible roadmap ahead was discussed.
At the same time an overview was given on China’s fund management companies, the insurance industry, pension funds, trust companies and sovereign wealth funds. In particular the interaction between the different pools of institutional assets was highlighted.
Stuart Leckie, O.B.E., is the Chairman of Stirling Finance, a Hong Kong-based pensions and investments advisor. Mr Leckie is the co-author of "Pension Funds in China", a book that provides a comprehensive and critical look at China's pension reform journey from 1949 to 2004, and also authored "Investment Funds in China".
He advised the Hong Kong Government on the establishment of the Mandatory Provident Fund, has served on various committees in Hong Kong's Securities and Futures Commission and was a Director of Exchange Fund Investment Limited, which launched the very successful Tracker Fund.
He currently advises on investments and pensions in Hong Kong and mainland China and has advised the Chinese Government on pensions reform.
