Outlook 2021: China
China’s economy is set to continue to recover in 2021. Schroders’ equities and debt fund managers, together with our emerging markets economist, look at what's in store.

Highlights:
• Economic growth in China is set to accelerate in 2021 as the recovery continues and the impact of stimulus measures launched this year feed through.
• In equities, sectors providing exposure to long-term growth themes in China should continue to outperform. A broad global economic recovery should also support cyclical sectors where valuations are still cheap relative to growth sectors.
• In Chinese bonds, sound economic fundamentals, attractive valuations and a positive outlook for the renminbi should all prove supportive.
