CIC posts 11.7 percent return on capital in 2009

According to the CIC report, “From its inception in September, 2007 through the end of 2008, CIC deployed about USD 21 billion into the market. The gradual deployment of capital was appropriate for a new company particularly under the turbulent market conditions. However, as CIC built its capability and the global economic and investment environment started to show signs of recovery, it significantly stepped up its investment activities, making new investments of about USD 58 billion in 2009.

Investment Performance

2008 2009
Return on Capital 1 6.8% 12.9%
Global Portfolio Return 2 -2.1% 11.7%

1 Return on Capital is based on the accounting income of CIC’s global portfolio, and the cash income and cash dividend declared from its domestic portfolio companies. The return rate is calculated based on CIC’s registered capital of USD 200 billion. Under the equity accounting method, accounting income is generally larger than the cash dividend received from the domestic portfolio companies. Since CIC’s domestic investments are for long-term purposes and their disposals are under restriction, CIC believes cash returns to be more appropriate performance metrics for Central Huijin’s domestic financial institution investments.

2 Global Portfolio Return is based on the annual change in the fair market value of CIC’s global investments.”
