Private equity in China: Reflections on 2012 and outlook

Dec 2012

There are strong tailwinds for private equity in China over the medium term.
But it’s not all smooth sailing as challenges abound

With turmoil in the global economy and with China’s economy experiencing a marked slowdown in 2012, a perfect storm has emerged for domestic and foreign private equity players in China to increasingly and on a larger-scale transform corporations and entire industries into pillars of future economic growth. The PE industry has become an important source of growth capital, bolstered by continued policy support from the Central Government. This will position the PE industry in China favourably over the medium term, in deal volume and value. However challenges abound in the face of opportunity.
