Reuters first to report China’s FX regulator surveyed banks, companies on yuan risk

Reuters was first to report that China’s currency regulator, the State Administration of Foreign Exchange (SAFE), has been conducting a rare survey of banks and companies to ask about their risk management processes and ability to handle volatility in the yuan. The SAFE did not give a reason for the survey, but its timing suggests Chinese authorities are girding for currency volatility as the Federal Reserve and other major central banks wean economies off massive pandemic-era stimulus, and are keen to avoid a repeat of the violent yuan slide during U.S. tightening in 2015-2016.
