China's State Security Fund (SSF) Council is seeking trustees to help its overseas investment operations, which involves up to 1.1 billion US dollars this year.

The council said potential trustees, which hold legal title to the capital in order to administer it for SSF, should have the capacity for secure storage of SSF's overseas investment assets.

The eligible trustees should have more than 5 billion U.S. dollars in capital or equivalent of currency during the immediate fiscal year, or 500 billion U.S. dollars worth of capital under its trusteeship.

Potential trustees' ratings must be given by internationally recognized rating institutions in the past three years and must be A or above. They should be established and registered outside China to be eligible, it said.

The government gave the go-ahead to overseas investment by the SSF as of May 1 after the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Labor and Social Security, and the People's Bank of China, the country's central bank, approved provisional regulations governing the overseas investment of the fund last month.

The government established the fund in 2000 as a strategic reserve for its aging population, and its total assets were valued at 201.02 billion yuan (25.1 billion U.S. dollars) by the end of last year.

The fund mainly comes from budgetary allocation from the Ministry of Finance, and revenues from sales of shares of state-owned firms listed overseas.

Under the investment plan unveiled last month, up to 800 million U.S. dollars will be used for share investment in overseas markets while up to 300 million U.S. dollars will be invested overseas in products with fixed returns.

Overseas investment will help the fund to expand its range of investments, diversify risks and maintain and increase the value of the fund, said a statement from the SSF.
