Global holdings of Chinese stocks and bonds have jumped by about $120 billion in 2021 as foreign investors chase returns in the country’s markets despite recent volatility and regulatory crackdowns, the Financial Times reported.

International investors held 7.5 trillion renminbi ($1.1 trillion) of equity and fixed income securities priced in renminbi as of the end of September, up about 760 billion renminbi from the end of 2020, according to the FT’s calculations.

The climb highlights how investors are reaching into mainland Chinese markets directly, rather than through financial instruments listed in New York and Hong Kong.
