Shadow banking worries limit China’s rebound

Telegraph UK:

Charlene Chu from Fitch said credit growth is running at a brisk 20pc, including off-book lending. She said the output generated by each extra yuan of lending has fallen from 0.75 to 0.30 this year, a sign that credit-driven growth is nearing exhaustion.

Zhiwei Ziang from Nomura said the central bank is worried about shadow banking excesses and is likely to impose curbs early, keeping the economy on a short leash.“Financial risks in the trust loan sector are mounting and the regulators will probably have to tighten controls. We would expect growth momentum to weaken,” he said.
