China Platform for European Institutional Investors

The China Platform for European Institutional Investors is an initiative aimed at supporting financial institutions in Europe with an interest in the Chinese financial sector. The Platform enhances awareness and knowledge of relevant developments, both in China itself and internationally, by publishing a fortnightly newsletter and organising expert events. Two themes in particular are significant; green finance in China, a highly dynamic field with major potential relevance for international efforts to address climate change, and geopolitics, given the increasingly volatile and uncertain international political context of European investment in China.

The Platform is  open to all European financial institutions. It was launched jointly by the Clingendael Institute and AXA IM in 2019. Clingendael China Centre acts as its secretariat.

China Finance Focus is a fortnightly newsletter produced by the Clingendael China Centre on behalf of the China Platform for European Institutional Investors. It provides investors with insights into the Chinese financial sector by presenting a selection of recent media outputs, mainly focussed on green finance and geopolitics.
