Arguably, little is known about the burgeoning private debt opportunity in China, but government policies are providing plenty of interest for fund managers in a range of sectors. In this edition of Spotlight, we catch up with Celia Yan, head of China and a member of the Asia private credit team at BlackRock. Yan explains how China is recovering from the pandemic, the importance of sustainability and why consumers are choosing more home-based brands. The conversation also covers the role of global investors and the supply of capital in relation to demand.
