She likes the Chinese insurance sector. Penetration levels are very, very low. The bond yield in China is starting to pick up, and that usually helps the lifecos. This is the largest company in China. They have gone through a rough time over the last 12-18 months, so it is trading at a very big discount to its peers. It will benefit from higher interest rates. She prefers Ping An and AIA (AAGIY-PK), as larger and more diversified plays.

She is very cautious about the banks because of balance sheet concerns, but really likes the life insurance sector. Very low penetration of products through all of China. This one is well positioned and trading at a relatively low valuation. (See Top Picks.)

Chinese financials have generally been looking a lot better. They did not suffer from the poor lending practices like other countries. This one has great potential. If you have a 3 or 5-year outlook, continue to Hold.

Largest life insurance company in China. It is frequently played as a proxy on the Chinese/Asian market. China has recently made some moves to stimulate growth. Quite optimistic about the Chinese market over the coming 12 months. However, this company is expensive compared to global life insurance companies. Speculators stock.
