China crash to weigh heavily on US treasuries, says bond star

The Chinese equity market’s slump will affect the US government bond market, according to Citywire AAA-rated Monher Bettaieb.

Speaking to Citywire Global in Zurich, Bettaieb, who is head of corporate bonds and runs the Vontobel Fund - Corporate Bond Mid Yield fund, said what happened in China comes as a consequence of the current credit crunch in the country.

Bettaieb said the Chinese government is being forced to sell government positions in Europe and the US, as the so-called policy banks alone can't make up for all the assets lost as a result of reduced financing.
