Exposure to property accounts for 26% of banking sector loans and is mainly home mortgage loans, which are of high quality and have a rate of default of around 0.1%, Xiao said, speaking at an event in Hong Kong.

Fang Xinghai, Vice Chairman of the China Securities Regulatory Commission, told the same event that China’s capital market would mature by increasing foreign participation.
