The past year has seen a dramatic pick-up on domestic securitizations in China. This presentation will provide an overview of both the CBRC and CSRC securitization schemes. But the speaker will focus on the legal, regulatory and other issues which must be addressed before a viable cross-border securitization market out of China can be developed. The session will include ample time for Q&A.
