China Insurance Regulatory Commission says the balance of insurance investment totally more than 4 trillion yuan in the first half of the year. This shows the investor sentiment is pessimistic.
The balance has increased about 11 percent from the beginning of the year. The composition of the balance includes bank savings, bonds and stock-related items. The percentage of bonds and stock-related items have dropped. But bonds still occupy about half of the balance. The return on investment or ROI is only 1.93 percent, suggesting profits on insurance investment are down.
