HONG KONG (Reuters) – Investment bank China Renaissance said it has raised more than 6.5 billion yuan ($945 million) in its latest yuan-denominated fund, giving the firm adequate firepower to invest in the world’s second-largest economy.
The firm, led by one of the country’s most famed rainmakers Bao Fan, said in a statement on Monday that its private equity arm Huaxing Growth Capital had raised its third yuan fund totaling over 6.5 billion yuan, with oversubscription of more than 1 billion yuan.
The fund has secured “great interest” from investors, known as limited partners (LPs), such as China’s National Social Security Fund, banks, insurers, funds-of-funds and university alumni funds, it said.
