BEIJING, July 12 (Reuters) - China’s outstanding total social financing was 166.92 trillion yuan ($24.59 trillion) at the end of June, up 12.8 percent from a year earlier, the central bank said on Wednesday.
TSF includes off-balance sheet forms of financing that exist outside the conventional bank lending system, such as initial public offerings, loans from trust companies and bond sales.
It can also hint at trends in China’s vast shadow banking sector.
