APR 2016


 

 

Shanghai, April 14, 2016 – China’s leading investment management company, KaiLong Group (“KaiLong”) announced today that it has reached an interim close of approximately GBP 24 million (USD 34 million) on its Outbound Investment Fund II. At the same time, the firm has also reached an agreement to acquire three office buildings in London, marking its expansion into the European market.

 

The acquisition is made together with its London-based operation partner. It includes three office buildings at prime locations in London, with a total GFA of 103,420 square feet. This follows KaiLong’s previous London investment, which adopted a similar value added return strategy by repositioning an office building into a serviced office.

 

Both London funds by KaiLong aim to provide a channel of outbound investments for investors, including high-net-worth individuals, family offices, trust companies and institutions from China and the rest of Asia. Currently, total value of KaiLong’s asset under management in London has exceeded GBP 100 million (USD 142 million).

 

Hei Ming Cheng, the Founder, Board Director and Chief Executive of KaiLong said, “I’m very excited with this acquisition. It demonstrates KaiLong’s capability to help domestic investors deploy outbound investment.” Mr. Cheng stated that KaiLong is committed to becoming a world-class investment management group, “It is our first step toward setting up global presence as we will be actively seeking other investment opportunities in offshore markets.”

 

Founded in 2004, KaiLong has forged ahead as one of the most successfully and competitive real estate investment management firms in the region. The offshore acquisitions will further diversify the firm’s investment portfolio to provide risk-adjusted returns for its investors. To date, KaiLong has invested over 1.5 billion USD in 30 assets. Of these, twelve have already been exited with excellent returns.
