IFU has completed more than 130 investments in China in partnership with Danish companies. Committed investments amount to a total of more than DKK 11 billion, of which IFU has provided almost DKK 2 billion either as equity or loans.
The investments have contributed to creating almost 30,000 jobs.
25 years' experience in China
Since IFU made its first investments in China in 1987 the number of Danish companies with business activities in China has risen sharply.
IFU has invested in a range of sectors including industry, cleantech, agriculture, the retail trade, IT, advisory services and pharmaceuticals. For example, IFU assisted Bestseller in setting up operations in China and has worked with Carlsberg on a number of investment projects.
Providing capital and advisory services from own offices
IFU provides advisory services and risk capital. The typical involvement in a project starts at the planning stage, continues during the establishment phase until the new company is able to operate on its own. When the shares are sold or the loan is repaid, the proceeds are reinvested in new project companies. IFU currently has an active portfolio of about 45 companies in China.
The IFU regional office in Beijing provides on-location advisory services, and the locally-appointed employees serve on the boards of a number of the companies established in partnership with Danish companies.
