SSP launches SINOpportunities Fund providing investors access to Chinese private investments
Liechtenstein, July 18, 2022
Strategic Swiss Partners AG (SSP), a private independent boutique management and financial advisory firm, has launched its Chinese private investment oriented SSP SICAV - SINOpportunites Fund in Liechtenstein, making the firm’s private investment offering in China more easily accessible to European professional investors and investment advisers.
The SINOpportunities Fund provides easy access for investors wishing to invest in exclusive, private investment opportunities in China in a safe, regulated and state supervised way.
The Fund offers priority access to attractive projects (SOE) in China, which state-owned capital participates in cooperation, and will build a diversified portfolio of high-quality and risk-diversified direct private investments in various sectors, including healthcare and life sciences, sports and culture, smart cities, new materials, new energy, finance, and international trade.
SSP is headquartered in Switzerland, with offices in China, United Arab Emirates and Malaysia. Its European and Chinese partners will provide a professional, secure and fully regulated environment for prudent and successful investment.
Guna Mahalingam, chairman of Strategic Swiss Partners and director of the Fund, said: “The objective of our SINOpportunites Fund is to provide easy access to attractive returns from side-by-side private investments with Chinese state-owned entities, such as companies and funds, leveraging first-class local resources and talent, and all investment projects are highly recognized by the market and strongly supported by the government because of their scarcity.
We are proud and honoured to partner with such distinguished state-owned enterprises (SOE) in China as Jinan Hi-Tech Holding Group Co., Ltd. and Jinggangshan Guoang Equity Investment Management Co., Ltd., having jointly established a Qualified Foreign Limited Partner (QFLP) open to foreign investors and the conduit for the SINOpportunites Fund.”
June 2021, SSP signed a cooperation agreement with Chinese state-owned enterprises on the establishment of QFLP funds and investment business. Mr. Felix Sutter, President Swiss Chinese Chamber of Commerce Zurich, invited by Jinan Municipal Government to attend the signing ceremony and delivered a speech.
Jinan Municipal Party Secretary Sun Licheng and other local party and government leaders attended the signing ceremony, and Jinan Deputy Mayor Yin Qingzhong delivered a speech on behalf of the government.
