On 22 March 2018, the Shanghai Stock Exchange, Shenzhen Stock Exchange and the Inter-agency Quotation and Service System for Privately Offered Products issued the Guidelines for the Management of Credit Risks During the Existence of Asset–Backed Securities (for Trial Implementation) (Draft for Comment) – hereafter, the Risk Guidelines – and the Guidelines for the Substance and Content of Regular Asset–Backed Security Reports (Draft for Comment), indicating that the regulators have now formally placed regulation of the risks during the existence of the financial product that is asset–backed securities on their agenda.

Asset-backed securitization is a form of financing where a specific asset pool provides the underlying assets to offer tradable securities that are backed by the specific cash flow arising from the underlying assets.
