Thanks to a Memorandum of Understanding signed a few days ago by the MFSA and the China Securities Regulatory Commission Maltese licensed service providers can now sell funds to Chinese institutional investors which have the status of a Qualifying Domestic Institutional Investor (QDII).

Currently there are around 100 QDIIs and these entities are empowered to invest on behalf of individual Chinese investors or organisations into investment funds authorised in recognised jurisdictions such as Malta. Typically, QDIIs are commercial banks, securities companies, fund companies, insurance companies and trust funds.

The significance of the Memorandum of Understanding becomes obvious when one considers the potential of the Chinese markets for Maltese funds. It is also evidence to the faith that various other important jurisdictions have in the local financial services industry.
