Building your links with Chinese investment
Understanding the new paradim of Chinese investors coming to the UK and then meeting their needs is something that has been raised in Board Meetings throughout the UK and particularly in London. Visible investments have made headlines in the press with property being the main benefactor but the hidden flow of money coming in for off-market property deals and business investment is more significant as it allows for a wider participation by the UK business community.
So how does a Chinese investor find a UK partner? Referrals by trusted networks is the most common route however unless you are part of this trusted network you will not get to hear about and participate in the wealth creation occurring.
The China Investors Club provides you with this ready access to Chinese investment flows, providing an environment where you can test the market, check whether your business is ‘China Ready’ and create strategic plans and partnerships when deemed beneficial.
What are the steps a Chinese investor will take to expand their international presence?
- Seek out distribution platforms for their existing products made in China
- Prefer to deal with a similar industry sector that they understand
- Find a company that has a more advanced version of the same product and ‘import’ this back to their own Chinese product range
- Form a closer formal investment partnership/ jv
Understanding Chinese culture is critical to building a successful business partnership. As such, the China Investers Club provides you access to the range of non-business related information ranging from:
– social media
Every month you will receive a compendium of recommended events, publications and advice that will help you find your own way to being successful with China business.
