WFOE (Wholly Foreign Owned Enterprise) refers to the privately held limited liability company in China in which all shareholders are foreign. Since June 2016, WFOEs are allowed to apply for registration to become Private Fund Managers (PFMs). This represents a critical milestone for overseas investors to and further participate in China’s financial market.
Thanks to its extensive resource and market coverage of its parent company, Guotai Junan Futures has provided strong support to WFOE PFMs for the launching and fundraising of onshore products over the past years.
QFII (Qualified Foreign Institutional Investor) refers to the investment scheme launched in 2002 which allows licensed overseas institutions to participate in mainland China’s stock exchanges using offshore capital. Ever since its launch, the China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC) has been proposing series of new rules to lift the restrictions on foreign investors, such as by removing investment quotas, simplifing remittance process and expanding investment scope. On September 25, 2020, the China Securities Regulatory Commission, the People's Bank of China and the State Administration of Foreign Exchange jointly proposed significant amendments to the previous QFII regulations, the implication of which is substantial as its investment scope was expanded to include commodity and financial futures.
