Goldman Sachs bought US Companies With Chinese State Funds

Goldman Sachs has used a fund set up with Chinese state money to buy a series of US and UK companies. The Wall Street bank has made seven deals using cash from a $2.5 billion private equity “partnership fund” it set up in 2017 with the sovereign wealth fund China Investment Corporation. This is according to people close to the fund and its operations.

The bank did reveal its investments in these companies in the past. However, Goldman Sachs did not say the deals were financed at least partly from the Chinese fund.

These deals by Goldman Sachs again shed light on how private equity funds are an effective way for Sovereign wealth funds to obtain holdings in different companies. The Goldman Sachs and CIC partnership has existed since the Trump presidency in 2017. Back then, The bank said CIC would be an “anchor investor” in the fund, as well as play an active role in helping the purchased companies expand in China.

“The co-operation fund is a US fund run by a US manager, and is managed to be in compliance with all laws and regulations . . . It continues to invest in US and global companies, helping them increase their sales into the China market.”

The CIC has also invested in the following companies in the past:

  • Cprime
  • Parexel
  • Project44
  • Aptos
  • Visual Comfort & Co
  • Boyd Corporation
