Invest in China, one of the world's largest economies.

Investment and growth opportunities in China.

China has a strong record of recent growth and its rising status on the world stage.
Today, China is both an essential manufacturing and consumption market, a global leader in renewable energy and on top of that; Hong Kong still plays a major role as a leading initial public offering (IPO) venue and the capital markets.

Green energy

The country has been accelerating the construction of new wind and solar power bases and boosting its transmission capabilities. The data backs this up: as local EV producers’ capacity ramped up, EV penetration rate jumped to 17.8% at the end of 2021, up from 5.8% in 2020. Given the uncertainties of natural gas and oil supply from rising global geopolitical risks, investors should be optimistic about green energy growth in China in 2022.

Affordable rental housing/common prosperity

China targets to build 6.5m units of affordable rental housing for 40 major cities during the 14th Five-Year Plan (which covers 2021-2025).

New infrastructure and green construction

China targets prefab buildings to account for more than 30% of the country's new construction by 2025 (vs. less than 20% in 2021), and particularly in public construction projects, which are likely to be early adopters of this low carbon construction technology.

Opportunities in the traditional construction industry

For many construction value chain companies, the markets have been giving them cyclical valuation, i.e., low valuation for their volatile and uncertain business. However, as China pursues greener buildings, opportunities are emerging for early leaders as they close the gap with their peers in developed markets, and gain market share in China.
