Our China Desk

The bridge between China and Germany

Since September 9, 2016, our bank is majority owned by Fosun International Limited. Together with Fosun, we facilitate Chinese customers' access to the German business sector and German customers' access to the China global market. Our China Desk department serves as a platform to develop cross-selling potential between Germany and China. Hauck & Aufhäuser has established a subsidiary in Shanghai and Nanjing and a representative partnership in Hong Kong to serve local wealth management, corporate finance and asset services needs in China. The focus is on the needs of private, corporate and institutional clients in China and Europe. In this context, Hauck & Aufhäuser provides access to European markets. Thus, the China Desk builds a bridge between China and Germany.

Fund services

Hauck & Aufhäuser supports fund providers in the licensing and distribution of their own funds in Hong Kong

The distribution of fund products in Hong Kong and China has so far mainly been the focus of large European and global fund providers. We are therefore all the more pleased to announce that we are the first medium-sized private label fund provider to be authorized to publicly distribute an in-house fund of our asset manager H&A Global Investment Management (HAGIM) in Hong Kong.

Our subsidiary Hauck & Aufhäuser Fund Services S.A. (HAFS) is the first capital management company to have authorized a Luxembourg mutual fund for public distribution under the Mutual Recognition of Funds (MRF) between Hong Kong and Luxembourg, which has been in force since January 2019. We owe this success to the excellent cooperation of HAFS with China Desk and to the support of Dechert LLP in Hong Kong and PwC Luxembourg.

In future, our third-party fund partners will also benefit from our distribution network in Hong Kong. In concrete terms, we support our clients in all organizational issues relating to the approval process of their fund and make our broad international distribution network available to them. The bank acts as an intermediary between the European and Asian capital markets and vice versa.

Your advantages as partner of
Hauck & Aufhäuser at a glance

We support you from the registration of your fund in Hong Kong to local fund distribution

Together we plan the approval process of your funds and accompany you during this time. You benefit from our network with renowned distribution partners in Hong Kong and through selected and experienced service providers - from their selection, the coordination and reconciliation of legal documents to the connection to relevant platforms and the organization of roadshows.

 

As the second largest fund location worldwide, Luxembourg has excellent expertise and offers fund initiators an innovative and rapidly developing financial environment. There are already a number of local institutions (e.g. Luxembourg for Finance, ALFI fund association) that have an excellent network in Asia and are thus continuously expanding the relationship between Luxembourg as a financial centre and the Middle East. 

 

Our goal is to gradually expand our local sales network for institutional and retail investors. The network consisting of members of the "Fosun family" as well as external business partners of Fosun, banks and asset managers will be made available to our customers. In this way, we open up the opportunity for you to distribute your products in Hong Kong with our support. So far, only larger fund providers with their own product range are represented in this market. Hauck & Aufhäuser has excellent niche products and thus stands out from the crowd.

 

Asset management products

For Professional Clients

The fast-growing asset management market in China offers unique investment opportunities for foreign professional and semi-professional investors. The MSCI Emerging Market Index has increased its China weighting from 28% in 2017 to 33% in 2019. We also firmly believe that foreign investment will increase as China's financial market continues to open up. Therefore, Hauck & Aufhäuser has established a so-called Wholly Foreign-Owned Enterprise (WFOE) in Shanghai and plans to offer inbound and outbound asset management and wealth management products through the relevant licenses (Peronal Finance Management (PFM) and Qualified Domestic Limited Partnership (QDLP)).
