Our China presence

Our experience in China dates back as early as 2000 where our parent company, Prudential plc established the first Sino-British insurance joint venture in China. In 2002, our award-winning Asian bond team started investing in China offshore bonds and we further enhanced our access to and knowledge of the Chinese market through our joint venture with CITIC Group in 2005. In 2005, we also incepted our Greater China equity strategy and continued to build up our expertise in the Chinese markets through the establishment of an investment management wholly foreign-owned enterprise (IM WFOE) in 2018.

Today, we manage a total of USD42.6 billion (as of December 2020) across Chinese equities and bonds through our local and regional investment teams, as well as via our joint ventures. Our presence in China shows our commitment and ability to navigate one of the world’s most dynamic financial markets.
