China's Debt Mountain: Old Gold Mountain or Just a Giant Rubbish Heap? The Evolving Situation and Potential Opportunities

China faces a growing debt problem of historical proportions which has been years in the making. Investors in distressed assets are now making forays into this evolving market, but a number of key questions remain:

  • What is the scale and scope of the underlying issues?
  • How are policymakers in Beijing addressing these issues?
  • What deals are getting done? By whom?
  • What is the nature of the underlying assets?
  • Has China's new enterprise bankruptcy law been a factor? How so? If not, is it evolving into one?
  • Could this be a wonderful mountain of assets...which investors simply cannot reach?
