Investing China’s Pensions

Ashby Monk

A former colleague of ours, Yu-Wei Hu, has just co-authored an interesting paper with Gregorio Impavido and Xiaohong Li on the governance and investment management of China’s pensions. It’s an interesting read that draws plenty of comparisons to international pensions and SWFs.

As the authors note,

“The Chinese pension system is highly fragmented and decentralized, with governance standards, pension fund management practices, their regulation and supervision varying considerably both across the funded components of the Chinese pension system and across provinces.”

In short, the paper describes the system and highlights progress and weaknesses. I learned a lot.
