The China Insurance Regulatory Commission (CIRC) issued the Circular on Issues relating to Investment of Insurance Funds in Equity and Real Estate (the 2012 Circular) on 16 July 2012 and has issued two other rules, all of which facilitate a more diversified range of investment options for insurance companies.

The 2012 Circular amends certain provisions of the Interim Measures on Investment of Insurance Funds in Equity (Equity Regulations) and the Interim Measures on Investment of Insurance Funds in Real Estate (Real Estate Regulations), promulgated by CIRC in 2010.
