About NAI500 Investment Destination Series

China’s outbound investments are highly increasing these years. With the rise of the upper-middle-class and affluent households and the growth of the size and scope of China’s consumer market, Chinese funds, enterprises and other large scale investors have focused on outbound investments, trade sales and licensing deals as their strategic focus.

With these trends, Chinese investors often ask themselves the following questions:

  • Where shall we invest?
  • What sectors, projects and companies are worth investigating?
  • How about the cultural and language barrier?
