China, the second largest economy in the world and home to 20% of the world’s population, offers tremendous opportunities for fund managers and multinational companies. China has built its reputation as a vital market for many of the worlds’ largest businesses and investors. Host to the largest venture capital market in the world, China’s alternative funds industry has consistently grown in size and increased in sophistication.
Its simplified local tax system and extensive treaty network offer investors the potential to effectively structure cross-border investments and partake in tax efficient trading. And while China as a whole boasts unique opportunities, various cities have more specialized focuses.
Shanghai has developed into a much sought-after destination for international investors since the enactment of the Shanghai Free Trade Zone in 2013. This dynamic and flexible financial hub offers managers unrestricted foreign currency exchange.
Alternatively, Beijing has become known as the heart of China’s private equity industry. With the influx of local RMB denominated on-shore funds, Beijing has also become the choice destination for many local and international managers looking to take advantage of the massive growth in domestic capital and investment opportunities China has to offer.
Since opening our first local office in 2011, Alter Domus China has since expanded its presence to include four offices and over 130 employees. Now with locations in Beijing, Shanghai, Nanjing and Chengdu, we’re able to assist our clients with all aspects of their alternative investments in mainland China.
