Will China become a less-risky place for pension funds to park their assets? And what is the situation with China's own retirement system?
These were the unanswered questions asked of George Magnus, economist and research associate at the China Centre of Oxford University, at the Pensions & Investments WorldPensionSummit, held in The Hague, Netherlands last month.
Magnus discussed China, its demographics and how now is not the time to start building up an exposure, despite low allocations across investment portfolios.
Delegates had the chance to ask questions at the summit, but since some went unanswered, Magnus agreed to share his thoughts. Questions and answers have been edited for style, clarity and conciseness.
