What's going on in China?

Markets have been going through a turbulent period in recent weeks and, in part, this has been down to events taking place in China.

Chinese equities have lost 11 per cent over the past three months because of concerns about an ongoing regulatory crackdown in the country. But these worries have been exacerbated by the liquidity crisis facing property giant Evergrande. Both of these developments have combined and rippled through global markets.

What does this mean for investors, emerging markets and portfolios?

This week FTAdviser special projects editor David Thorpe is joined by Mark Williams, manager of the Somerset Asia Income fund, and Abhi Chatterjee, chief investment strategist at Dynamic Planner.

They discuss whether the turmoil represents a 'new normal', what lessons investors can take from this episode about China in particular and emerging markets in general, and whether the events of the past few months will have any long-term impact on portfolios.
