IFU's representation in Shanghai provides on-location advisory services

IFU has completed more than 130 investments in China in partnership with Danish companies.

Almost 30 years of experience in China

Since IFU made its first investments in China in 1987, the number of Danish companies with business activities in China has increased significantly.

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

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’s regional office in Shanghai 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.
