These regulations are intended to be released as a supporting guideline for the “Guiding Opinions.” A spokesperson of CSRC said that most of the new regulations on asset management business have been implemented since 2016. These regulations are intended to promote a smooth transition of the stock and asset management business of securities and futures operating institutions, to further improve the compliance management and risk control level of the private equity management business of securities and futures operating institutions, to effectively protect the legitimate rights and interests of investors, and to prevent systemic risks.
