Urban Development Fund – Investment Strategy

The HIG Urban Development Fund was established in 2009 to invest in mixed-use urban lifestyle development projects undertaken by government-owned entities in well-developed regions in China. The fund employs both Debt & Equity investment strategies, which are both bolstered by government guaranties. Generally, the investment cycle is around 2 to 3 years and the investment size is approximately $80 to $160 million. The HIG Urban Development Fund focuses on projects encouraged by the Chinese government and thus far has invested in, Indemnificatory housing, Highway construction, ecological and environmental protection projects and new rural construction projects. Investment in the State-Owned infrastructure projects are also a focus, including: press, publishing, radio and television media, culture, arts, tourism, recreation and other cultural industries.

Our mission is to help local governments and other partners to build the “New City of Culture”. Through active financial and operational management measures, our involvement will allow for the host city to build first-class urban cultural institutions, and allow generally small and medium-sized emerging cities advance into full cultural and economic maturity.
