It's the highest level since 2010.

According to Dealogic, on November 27th, Ping An Insurance completed a $4.2bn equity-linked deal in what is the second largest Asia (ex Japan) equity-linked deal on record, behind Bank of China's $5.9bn issue in June 2010. This landmark deal helps to push China equity-linked volume to $14.2bn in 2013 YTD, more than fourfold year-on-year ($3.4bn) and the highest YTD level since 2010 ($15.1bn).

Subsequently, China ECM volume is up 9% year-on-year to $82.6bn in 2013 YTD.
