* Peking Founder seeking state-owned strategic investor -
HONG KONG/BEIJING/SHANGHAI, Dec 3 China's Peking
University Founder Group is looking for strategic investment
from a large state-owned enterprise after defaulting on an
onshore bond, three sources told Reuters on Tuesday.
SHANGHAI Chinese regional banks had to pay more for funds through China's interbank bond market on Monday, and their share prices came under pressure, following a rare takeover of a troubled lender by the country's banking and insurance regulator.
SHANGHAI Chinese policymakers are pumping more liquidity into the financial system and channeling credit to small and medium-sized firms, and Beijing looks set to further loosen monetary conditions to mitigate threats to growth from a heated Sino-U.S. trade war.
SHANGHAI China's central bank is experimenting with more delicate tools to support bank liquidity and lending, showing an apparent reluctance to resort to blunter monetary policy instruments such as cutting the amount of cash banks must hold as reserves despite abundant signs of weakening growth.
