In August we released our newsletter China: From Leader to Laggard, in which we reviewed how China transformed from a top-performing country to a bottom-performing country between 2020 and 2021. We noted that increased regulation was a key reason for this change as new government policies have spooked investors. We highlighted that China has gone through these periods of regulatory change in the past and opined that the market would continue to be jittery over the next six to twelve months before recalibrating to the new environment.
