China Data Insight (Q4 2016)
Posted On: 06 Mar 2017
In 2016, GPs deployed US$7.5 billion in China, the lowest total since 2009. Disclosed capital invested decreased for all strategies excluding buyouts, which increased from a record low in 2015. While the drop in investment may reflect China’s slowing GDP growth, it also coincides with a surge in corporate investors, government funds and LPs doing direct deals. In fact, non-GP investors led some of the largest private investments in 2016, such as the US$4.5 billion round for financial services provider Ant Financial—in which the majority of investors were non-GPs.
