This week on Morningstar's  The Long View  podcast, Martin Lau, manager of numerous FSSA funds--including FSSA Asian Equity Plus, FSSA China Growth, and FSSA Hong Kong Growth--discussed the recent sell-off of Chinese equities and heightened market intervention by Chinese regulators.

Examining what increasing regulatory pressure might mean for Chinese equities and new buying opportunities, Lau said that investors' view of Chinese stocks, particularly in the West, moves in cycles. He emphasized that, from his point of view, investing in China is neither as great nor as bad as investors often think.
