3 Reasons Why Sovereign Wealth Funds are Bullish on Huarong


Chinese bad debt is a hot sector for institutional investors. Blackrock, the Blackstone Group, Bain Capital and KKR are savoring over the possibility of buying a stake in China Huarong Asset Management Co Ltd, the largest of China’s bad loan managers. Other institutional investors include sovereign wealth funds from Asia and the Middle East. Huarong is seeking to sell a major stake worth between 15% to 20% to strategic investors before their initial public offering. The IPO could be as far as 2016.
