The development of China’s capital markets will continue to trail its strong economic growth until there is a radical improvement in standards, according to a survey of the region’s most powerful investors.

Institutional investors in China say the lack of independent directors, byzantine share-ownership structures and poor regulations and disclosure are the chief reasons leading them to hold back from investing in listed companies there.
