For Beijing-based white-collar worker Yang Huan, the most exciting part of the day is around 9 pm, when she checks yields of funds she’s invested in.
But unlike several months ago when Yang would brag to her friends about higher-than-expected return rates, she is now more worried about the recent turbulence among the public equity fund market.
“I’ve been losing money for a few days, and become anxious seeing some negative forecasts about funds and the stock market on social media platforms like Weibo,” Yang said.
Yang started investing in public equity funds last year based on suggestions from a close friend.
