Chinese Builder Agile’s Liquidity Questioned Despite Bond Gains

(Bloomberg) — A Chinese builder of villa apartments and high-rise homes set amid landscaped gardens is facing mounting concerns about its longer-dated debt.

However, investors are pricing in a significant risk of nonpayment further down the line.
