A Financial Times Service
China Confidential - Premium Investment Insight

Home / Info / Feedback / About us


China Confidential is a research service from the Financial Times providing an indispensable compass for investors and corporations navigating the Chinese investment landscape.

We offer a suite of research products, encompassing monthly indicators based on our own proprietary data, an in-depth fortnightly report analysing the latest development across the vital sectors of the Chinese economy, a fortnightly conference call enabling subscribers to discuss our latest findings with our research team, and up-to-the-minute alerts delivered straight to your inbox.

We survey hundreds of consumers, manufacturers, logistics companies, employers and underground banks each month, and use our network of researchers in nine cities to generate grassroots research on the big topics of the moment, often yielding calls that challenge conventional wisdom. We also conduct custom research for individual clients using our network of researchers, our survey capacity and other tools.

Unlike research produced by investment banks and brokers, we have no vested interest in promoting particular views. We also eschew over-simplified bull vs bear analyses, using our own findings to provide objective insight into the real state of the Chinese economy.

China Confidential is brought to you by the Financial Times, one of the world's leading business news and information organisation, recognised for our authority, integrity and accuracy. The FT provides a broad range of essential services to the growing audience of internationally minded business people. Read more about the FT.
