Over $40 Billion Direct: Sovereign Wealth Descends on China

Despite economic headwinds, such as a potential for massive job losses in China, foreign public funds continue to want to access thematic institutional investments in Asia’s largest market. Public institutional investors such as sovereign funds have directly invested over US$ 42.97 billion in China (including Hong Kong) from 2013 to the end of 2015, according to SWFI’s Sovereign Wealth Fund Transaction Database. Sovereign investors such as Singapore’s GIC Private Limited, China Investment Corporation (CIC), Qatar Investment Authority (QIA) and the Kuwait Investment Authority (KIA) actively pursued large-scale opportunities in Chinese real estate and company investments.
