China launches pilot programme to boost real estate investment

China has launched a pilot programme for real estate private equity investment funds as part of efforts to promote the property industry. The China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC) said the investment scope of the funds would include residential housing, commercial property, and infrastructure projects. The securities regulator said investors in the pilot products have to put in at least USD1.5m and would mainly be institutional investors. The CSRC unveiled a sweeping plan late last year to revive the slumping housing industry, focusing mainly on the supply side by pledging financial support to cash-strapped developers. China’s home prices steadied in January, ending a 16-month decline after the government expanded stimulus policies for the sector. The CSRC said China is also encouraging participation by foreign investors through an inbound investment programme called the Qualified Foreign Limited Partnership (QFLP).
