SHANGHAI (Reuters) – China’s banking and insurance regulator has issued detailed rules to regulate insurance investments in trust products, two sources with the knowledge of the matter told Reuters on Friday, part of a campaign to fend off financial risks.

In a notice issued last week and seen by Reuters, the regulator set a ceiling for the amount of money insurers can put in single collective trust products and banned them from using such investments to bypass regulations for other purposes.
