Industry experts gathered together for discussions 

The road to innovation and healthy development of the insurance and insurance asset management industry under the new financial pattern 

During this forum, the guests present put forward different opinions concerning "Practical Dilemma of Equity Investment in Insurance Funds under the New Policy of Pan-asset Management and Integrated Regulation", "Exploration of Insurance Fund Equity Investment Path and Innovation of Regulation Ideas under the New Situation", "Opportunities and Challenges of Insurance Funds Participating in Overseas Equity Investment under the Financial Openness", "Discussion on Risk Management and Control of Future Insurance Fund Equity Investment" and other topics. 

Miss YANG Fan, the vice president of New China Asset and deputy director of the Equity Special Committee of Insurance Asset Management Association of China, expressed her exclusive views on the topics such as "Problem Faced by the Development of Private Equity Investment and Countermeasures". In addition, Miss YANG Fan said that as an insurance asset management institution, New China Asset is looking forward to the further opening of China's finance and a clearer legal regulatory system in the legal field, which is the basic guarantee for financial markets. Therefore, the release of the Blue Book and the industry research conducted by the Green Legal Global Alliance look to future improvement. 

Mr. TAN Guobin, the chief investment officer of PICC Capital Investment Management Company Limited, shared his understanding on the equity investment in insurance funds from the aspects of "equity investing method of insurance funds from the perspective of allocation" and "equity investing method of insurance asset management institutions". He said that since the insurance funds released equity investment in 2010, the regulatory authorities have been guiding insurance funds to invest in equity, but insurance funds are relatively cautious in making equity investments, including risk factors, solvency and many other issues. 

Mr. JIA Yanlong, founding partner and general manager of Source Capital, proposed that the insurance liability characteristics determine that a large proportion of that is prospective projects with cash flow investment; the short-term private placements were conducted by the investors, which is not popular with most people; the internal decision-making process is relatively complicated; the overall economic environment and the development of the insurance industry are not optimistic in recent years; the inherent problems of the private equity industry; the obvious effects of leading enterprises in the industry cause the situation of "it's not easy to earn from the insurance". 

Mr. XU Yuxin, deputy general manager of CCCC Fund, made an explanation on the "Relationship between Insurance Funds and Infrastructure Investment". He believes that insurance funds and infrastructure investment have a higher degree of fitting. In addition, he said that the insurance industry is developing rapidly but not evenly, and the 2018 Blue Book of Legal Health of China's Insurance Industry released today has a good guiding significance for how to strengthen and expand the insurance industry and promote the development of the insurance industry. 

Mr. YIN Kai, managing director of CASVC, from the perspective of FOF, proposed that the deep integration of science and finance advocated by the state can participate in the FOF through financial institutions, forming the pilot exploration to promote innovation and facilitate the high quality development, so as to promote the transformation of scientific and technological achievements and drive science and technology to facilitate the development of the real economy. 

Mr. LU Xiaobing, chief investment officer of Hangzhou Oriental Jiafu Asset Management Co., Ltd, expressed his views on the participation of insurance funds in private equity investment. He suggested that the advantages of FOF and government guidance funds in private equity funds are more obvious. Firstly, there is a close relationship among the characteristics of insurance funds, the industrial attributes of insurance and the market capacity of equity; Secondly, since information asymmetry and friction costs lead to poor cooperation, insurance institutions tend to set up their own PE funds. 

Miss ZHENG Muzi, general manager of SDIC exchanged views from the perspective of "Local AMC and Insurance Fund Cooperation". She suggested that the cooperation between local AMC and insurance funds is relatively small in the form of funds. The matching of non-performing asset investment cycle and insurance fund duration is relatively high. In addition, Ms. Zheng believes that the release of the Blue Book has made an objective research on the development status quo of the insurance industry and the situation from the legal perspective, and provided useful guidance for the further development of the insurance asset management industry. 

Miss ZHUO Le, director of legal risk control of Huagai Capital Co., Ltd., expressed her views from the perspective of market-oriented fund managers. She proposed that the internal risk management of the fund is a pyramid structure, and the management company needs to focus on the internal control guidelines for insurance. About the fund, it is very important to be fully transparent and open to insurance capital. 

Miss MA Yayun, the senior partner of Beijing Docvit Law Firm, shared her views on equity investment plans by combining her many years of experience in practice. She believes that the equity investment plan is facing various pressures under the current policy environment. In addition to the insurance asset management industry audit standards, the infrastructure association audit standards are also involved. Under the requirements of compliance and approval, it is more difficult to bridge the needs of both the fund side and the asset side. Product development is a relatively slow process. The product investment model will be continuously explored and shaped, forming into an investment model acceptable to the industry gradually. 

In the end, Director LIU Guangchao made a summary of the conference. He suggested that Beijing Docvit Law Firm will continue to carry out research on 2018 Blue Book of Legal Health of China's Insurance Industry, with the law as the core element, constantly exploring and extending to the industry, with the aim of facilitating the green and healthy development of the industry by using the power of law.
