China’s GBA offers great potential says Investcorp

Investcorp has published a white paper that looks at the potential of China’s Greater Bay Area (GBA) – encompassing most of the Guangdong province and the two special administrative regions of Hong Kong and Macau.

The area boasts a significant number of innovative, growing and profitable private enterprises which together comprise what is sometimes referred to as the ‘factory of the world’ and present significant investment potential.

Investcorp and Hong Kong-based partners Fung Capital recently announced a new $500m fund focused on the GBA during the Future Investment Initiative in October.

The white paper, entitled ‘The Emergence of China’s Greater Bay Area’ tracks the development of the region into an economy that is the 10th biggest globally, the transformation of Shenzhen into an economic powerhouse following Deng Xiaoping’s reform and opening policies of the 1980s, and the growth trajectory of the region following increased investment in infrastructure and pro-innovation policies.

“The GBA offers huge scope for growth in comparison with other Bay Area industrial clusters around the world, which are currently far ahead in per capita GDP. With the launch of our new buy-out focused $500m GBA-focused fund with Hong Kong’s Fung Group, targeting promising mid-cap companies with proven profitability and strong growth potential, we are looking to give investors access to this evolving opportunity,” said Investcorp co-chief executive Hazem Ben-Gacem.
