As China’s transformation towards a more consumer-led economy continues, it is exerting an ever-greater influence on global trade and investment. And it is one of the most active sources of foreign direct investment, with Jersey being a major beneficiary.
China is also undertaking one of the most ambitious infrastructure projects the world has ever seen in its Belt and Road Initiative – a large-scale strategy designed to drive bigger
and faster trade and capital flows between the east and the west. This is creating a rapidly growing pool of middle income investors seeking portfolio diversity.
For commercial and personal wealth advisory professionals who understand and can access its capital flows, China is an unparalleled opportunity.
The Belt and Road Initiative is vast, encompassing countries that account for 29% of global GDP
By 2030, it is anticipated that 66% of the world’s middle class will live in Asia – many along the Belt and Road.
China’s global OFDI reached almost $US200 billion in 2016.
Its investment into the ‘big three’ European nations of UK, Germany and France made up nearly half of China’s 2016 EU investment of over €35 billion.
