AltAssets: Clark Song on Private Equity Investment in China

I had published this article in my former blog but would keep it here for new visitors. I was interviewed by Brendan Scott, Editor with AltAsset on private equity investments in China days ago. I guess I am the first mainland Chinese who had accepted such an interview.

AltAssets is an independent private equity news, information and research source. The site serves over 800 limited partners and 15,000 private equity professionals with comprehensive, up-to-up information, analysis and opinions.

I talked about deals, private equity funds and the strategy which limited partners should adopt in China.

A recent case showed us more limited partners had joined the China market. A US private equity fund invested a Beijing-based company which is also controlled by another US private equity firm. I think all deal process and legal structure could be done in overseas. I am surprised that Chinese financial institutions such as China Citic Group had been in the LP list. European institutional investors which I had even never heard before, such as KfW and FMO, also in the list.

I remembered that Auda International LP, which has approximately $4.6 billion under management, plans to invest up to $300 million in Asia private equity funds in the next three years. Last year, three pension funds, such as Church Pension Fund and Canada Pension Plan Investment Board and Teacher Retirement System of Texas, had set up offices in Hong Kong to source private equity investment opportunities in China.

It is an obvious trend for global investors to allocate their assets in the emerging China economy.
