China's insurance regulator has announced comprehensive rules governing insurers' investments. The new guidelines will allow insurance companies to invest up to 20 percent of their assets in the stock market, and up to 10 percent in real estate.

The long awaited regulations come after the regulator earlier approved new investment channels for insurers, and the proportion of funds insurers are allowed to invest in selected sectors.

China Insurance Regulatory Commission also says insurers will be allowed to invest in corporate bonds that are not guaranteed by banks, a change analysts say will help the development of the Chinese bond market.

The commission also says it will strictly limit insurers from investing in derivative products.
