Overview

China ' s Trust and Investment Companies (TICs) developed as providers of credit and services not offered by the banking system They enjoyed more flexibility in lending terms, and had access to financing from a variety of sources. Their range of activities had been wide, encompassing deposit taking, merchant banking, investments in industrial companies, real estate, securities brokerage services and underwriting.
