Yu Garden, also known as Yuyuan Garden, is a large Chinese nursery located in Huangpu Qu, Shanghai Shi, near the City of God Temple in Shanghai’s Old City.

Trading activity can take place on venues like as exchanges and clearing houses, however many transactions take place over-the-counter (OTC), or directly between participants. Companies that provide financial services are, on the whole, conservative.
