HEATH, TX--(Marketwire - Aug 9, 2012) - Fund Architects LLC, a provider of dynamic asset allocation portfolios designed for a broad range of investors, has released a summary report on the current state of Chinese investment markets.
"A Conversation on China" is one of Fund Architects BLUEPRINTS FOR BETTER INVESTING series. The report was authored by the firm's Chief Market Strategist, Dr. Henry Ma -- a native of Southern China -- who recently visited with executives at local banks and other financial institutions in mainland China to gain an 'on-the-ground' perspective of the country's ongoing economic miracle.
With stops in virtually all the nation's major economic and political centers across a four-week period, including Hong Kong, Shenzhen, Shanghai, and Beijing, Dr. Ma brought back a timely point of view on the issues China is currently facing and how they might play into a global asset allocation strategy.
"China is facing a number of big challenges these days, and a global investor needs firsthand knowledge of these challenges if he or she intends to stay on top of returns," says Keith Reed, co-founder and Executive Vice President of Fund Architects. "I can't imagine anyone better equipped to analyze the state of the Chinese investment markets than Henry."
Reed says that as a result of Dr. Ma's comprehensive view of the marketplace, Fund Architects is able to allocate a distinct portion of its investment models to Chinese investments. In addition, the firm plans to introduce an Asian-only strategy to its lineup of strategic global diversification strategies sometime this quarter.
Dr. Ma, who is a member of the Fund Architects Investment Committee, earned BA and MA degrees in Finance and Economics from Beijing University before coming to the U.S. He was awarded a Ph.D. in Economics from Boston University. Now a resident of Boston, Dr. Ma maintains a large circle friends and family in China.
"I'm convinced that on-the-ground insight into China is important to form a long-term investment thesis and gain conviction," says Dr. Ma. "Newspapers and research reports too often have biased views from the authors."
