China Research Solutions

Equity and fixed income research solutions from our Beijing office

Overview

China research support services

As the global economy remains rattled by the aftereffects of the pandemic and the Russia-Ukraine conflict, international financial services firms are turning to China for growth for the following reasons:

  • China has abandoned its Zero-COVID policy, alleviating concerns regarding business disruption

  • It is back on the growth track

  • The country is home to many innovative and large companies that global investors are interested in

  • Easing regulations are making it possible for financial services firms to enter China

Along with the positives, the China market poses unique challenges that international firms find difficult to navigate. At Acuity’s Beijing office, we combine our in-depth capital markets expertise with our strong research domain to present integrated solutions related to equity and fixed income research on the China market.

Our clients benefit from our China research analysts’ presence on the ground and language capabilities. We perform a number of research tasks for our global clients, such as local news analysis, creating and updating financial models, attending conferences held in Mandarin, sourcing useful data from Chinese databases such as WIND, translating policy documents, writing reports, conducting channel checks and reaching out to management teams of Chinese companies.
