Qatar Holding, the investment arm of Qatar's sovereign wealth fund, has been granted $1 billion to invest in China's capital markets, China's foreign exchange regulator said on Tuesday.

Official Chinese media in June reported that Qatar was applying for a $5 billion quota in China's Qualified Foreign Institutional Investor (QFII) scheme, the main channel for foreign investment in Chinese stock and bond markets.
QFII quotas are currently capped at $1 billion per investor although official media has reported Chinese regulators are looking at increasing the cap.
China has been shifting its target investor base in the QFII scheme to long-term players such as sovereign, pension and endowment funds.
