Potentially one of the greatest underlying risks when investing in China, however, is a common but controversial corporate structure that gets little attention in the West. This complicated legal agreement is the variable interest entity (VIE), often referred to as the Sina model, after Chinese online media company SINA Corporation (NASDAQ:SINA), which was the first to use the structure, in 2000.

Tencent anyone?
