    But the big financial institutions in China are owned by the government or interwoven into the top levels of the CCP. Why would they open up this sector?

    You must have missed the memo about China totally being the future. Every CEO must open a new business in China or lose out to the competition. Yup, Yup

    And wait for 20/30 yrs to get a foothold and finally close down and leave..

    We hope to be able to quickly build up the size, achieve economies of scale and operational efficiency to lower investment costs as quickly as possible
    Maybe after 20 or 30 years, we can achieve the same investment and operational efficiency in China like in the U.S., and then our costs would get close to those in the U.S. too,” Lin said. “But that needs the support of a relatively large size.”

    It depends on the industry. If the government controls it so the CCP and bilk it then not an industry you should try to make it an China.

    Stay away from anything that in the 1950's had a national pride associated with it or control the the life of people

    - Trains
    - Cars
    - Telecom systems
    - Airlines
    - News
    - Home building
    - Steel / Concrete
    - Banking / Insurance
    - Power generation / distribution
    - Education
    - Health

    Apart from those then it's fair game.

    vanguard are big on ETFs - imagine china is keen to get more of these into their markets to help "sanitise" the rubbish listings into a nice clean fund from a US name that people would trust
