The first batch of pilot wealth management products aimed at retail investors looking to boost their retirement savings has been unveiled, according to China's top banking regulator, informed The Xinhua News Agency.

Starting on December, local individual investors in the pilot cities of Wuhan, Chengdu, Shenzhen and Qingdao could purchase the financial products from the wealth management units of four designated banks, said the China Banking and Insurance Regulatory Commission.
