The Beijing-based firm will use the funds to invest in technology, business services, the consumer sector, new energy, smart manufacturing and the internet, it said in a statement yesterday. China's National Social Security Fund, multiple banks and insurers, and college's alumni funds are among investors, the Hong Kong-listed investment bank added.
Founded in 2005, China Renaissance began its private equity business in 2013 and has become renowned for its new economy fund, which managed USD4.1 billion worth of assets as of the end of last year.
Some 19 companies backed by the fund, including Meituan-Dianping, Focus Media and Wuxi Apptec, have gone public.
