Financial Innovation of the Chinese Financial Markets: New Types of Chattel Pledges



The author examines some of the difficulties relating to chattel pledges in China from a financial innovation perspective. This article finds that: (i) under current Chinese financial practice, legal innovation exists in pledges over bank accounts and dynamic pledges; (ii) the new types of chattel pledge faces difficulties establishment and implement of a pledge; (iii) the numerus clausus principle is called into question and should be relaxed to recognize the new types of chattel pledges by way of a broad interpretation, and party autonomy should be taken into account in the realization of them.
