Value Partners and Oxford Metrica launch “Riding the Dragon”

Hong Kong asset manager Value Partners, in collaboration with strategic advisory firm Oxford Metrica, has launched “Riding the Dragon”, a detailed white paper making the case for investment in China.

Riding the Dragon, a sequel to last year’s white paper “Dancing with the Dragon”, covers six key areas including observations of COVID-19, a performance review highlighting China’s recent volatility and recovery, dispelling five myths about China, examining the rapid increase in Chinese listings, and identifying likely future investment themes.

Oxford Metrica Chairman Dr Rory Knight said “It has been predicted that by 2027 China will be the world’s largest economy. Every four years it is growing by an amount equal to the GDP of the UK - a new UK every four years! It is a nation bristling with opportunity where investing will at times feel like ‘Riding the Dragon’.”

“We hope that all those who study it will find this report both stimulating and enlightening,” said Knight.

Value Partners’ Managing Director of European Business Hendrik von Ripperda-Cosyn said: “China A-share inclusion in the benchmark combined with significant steps toward increased financial openness present international investors with hitherto unattainable possibilities.”

“Investors can no longer afford to ignore China”, said Cosyn.
