While the focus of China's WMPs market development used to be on mobilizing social resources to support the growth of the real economy, the authorities would do more to ensure the value of people's financial assets preserved and increased, Pan told the forum.

This is not only a financial issue, but also a major economic and social issue, as it involves the readjustment of the income distribution system and the economic restructuring, he added.

Regulation of the WMPs market should be strengthened to control risk and push forward the healthy development of the sector.
