Finance Research Letters, 2016, vol. 19, issue C, 217-221

Abstract: We analyze the trading behavior of the Chinese National Social Security Fund (CNSSF) – a fund that operates in a highly political environment. With a particular focus on the financial crisis [2007(Q3)-2009(Q1)], we show that the CNSSF adopts a rebalancing strategy that achieves a balance between portfolio liquidity and growth.
