Report: China regulator sets cap for mutual funds' investment in NCDs

The China Securities Regulatory Commission has set a cap for investments by mutual funds into negotiable certificates of deposit, or NCDs, in a bid to reduce risks in the country's financial system, Reuters reported March 27, citing "people with knowledge of the matter."

Through the "window guidance," the regulator advised mutual funds to limit their total NCD allocation to not more than 20% of the portfolio when a bond fund is set up.

Newly launched bond funds could also feature less than 80% of bonds, the guidelines added. Window guidance is typically informal instructions that are often relayed verbally with no written notice.

The guidance came in response to concerns over excessive NCD allocation in bond funds of mutual fund companies, the news outlet said, citing a message directed at such entities in Shanghai.

The regulator did not comment on the matter, Reuters added.
