The number and volume of cross-border investments have increased significantly around the world in recent years. Deals involving Chinese companies have been a major factor contributing to this trend; the slowing of China’s economic growth and the depreciation of Renminbi have increased investors’ appetite for high yield capital growth.
In 2016, the value of Chinese cross-border mergers and acquisitions hit $36 billion in the U.S. and $72 billion in Europe—up from $5 billion and $13 billion in 2015, respectively. With the main motives for this expansion being technology acquisition and expansion into new markets, it seems reasonable to expect the trend to continue on in 2017.
In this seminar, Prof. David Yu
, Adjunct Professor of Finance at NYU Shanghai and certified aviation appraiser, will look at the current trends, drivers and lessons learnt in cross-border investments by using the aviation industry as an example.Topics include:
