China Facts: Go West go Cool….



A report this month by consultancy Rhodium Group found that Chinese investment into North America plunged to a seven-year low in the first half of 2018. Total Chinese investments in the US and Canada reached just $2bn, down 92% per cent on the same period last year. Europe, by contrast, absorbed some $12bn in completed Chinese investments - six times the North American inflows. In addition, Europe received $20bn in announced Chinese M&A deals, vastly exceeding the $2.5bn in announced M&A deals in North America during the first half, however, Europe is also showing a recent trend of being tightened up*) Question is what impact this will have on China's appetite for Scandinavian assets in the month/years to come?
