BEIJING (Reuters) - China’s banking and insurance regulator said on Monday there have been no changes to existing regulations on lenders’ investment in policy bank bonds.
The Banking and Insurance Regulatory Commission (CBIRC) made the comment in statement sent to Reuters.
Reuters reported on Thursday that the regulator has started to restrict lenders’ investment in policy bank bonds, widely seen as an effort to prod lending to the broader economy.
China’s government bonds rallied on Thursday.
