CreditEase Wealth Management Releases Survey of Chinese New Middle Class Investment Habits

Results outline market potential for "robo-advisor" products in China

BEIJING, Nov. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- CreditEase Wealth Management, the wealth management unit of CreditEase, one of China's largest fintech Companies, announced the results of a report conducted jointly with Bloomberg Businessweek China surveying Chinese new middle class investment habits. Among the results, the report showed that:

  • 76% of new middle class investors are willing to accept investment advice through digital channels
  • 73% prefer low volatility products
  • 62% prefer personalized investment products
  • 61% prefer investment products with low service fees

China's new middle class is an important contributor to the country's RMB 50 trillion in total savings and nearly RMB 100 trillion of investable money -- estimated to rise to RMB 200 trillion by 2020. However, with only 12% of Chinese investors using investment advisors, as compared to 67% of US investors, the need for reliable wealth management and investment advice is mushrooming. Combined with widespread use of the mobile internet for daily transactions, and relative lack of "traditional" investment advisors, there is a potentially enormous market opportunity for innovative new solutions.

CreditEase Wealth Management believes that "robo-advisors", which provide automated, algorithm-based portfolio management advice, will play an increasingly important role in filling the "advice gap" for new middle class investors.

"In China's dynamic investment environment, planning a long-term investment strategy has always been challenging," said Mr. Tang Ning, CEO and Founder of CrediteEase. "And in recent years, the number of new investment products and options available to new middle class investors has expanded tremendously. By providing powerful, user-friendly tools to create intelligent and balanced portfolios, we believe that sophisticated robo-advisors will help guide investors towards realizing long-term, sustainable wealth creation."

CreditEase Wealth Management recently launched Toumi RA, its own robo-advisor product to help investors build cross-regional, cross-border portfolios with diversified asset classes. Based on modern investment portfolio theory and advanced back-end algorithms, Toumi RA provides global ETF portfolio asset allocation by tracking stock, bond and property market indexes in China, the U.S. and other countries in real time.

"We build IoT infrastructure products - when you have to integrate different devices, different systems and cloud you have to build an application to do that but we eliminate the need to build an application. Our products can integrate any device, any system, any cloud regardless of protocol," explained Peter Jung, Chief Product Officer at Pulzze Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...
Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, provided an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud. This is critical background for IT and data professionals...
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, contrasted how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud.

He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Predictive analytics tools monitor, report, and troubleshoot in order to make proactive decisions about the health, performance, and utilization of storage. Most enterprises combine cloud and on-premise storage, resulting in blended environments of physical, virtual, cloud, and other platforms, which justifies more sophisticated storage analytics.
