BCS Global Markets, the international markets and investment banking division of BCS Financial Group, has inked a strategic partnership with Caderus Capital, a Russian-Chinese investment group, in a bid to foster cross-border investments between China and Russia, according to a BCS statement.
The partnership between the two groups will aim to facilitate and support a cross-border collaboration between China and Russia, two of the largest economic blocs in the region. As such, both venues have also agreed to collaborate in promoting the Caderus China Fund, a Chinese equities investment fund in Russia and one of the country’s inaugural funds granting exposure in the country by Russian investors.
In terms of the Caderus China Fund in Russia, the initiative will be exclusively managed by a Hong Kong subsidiary of China Asset Management, one of the country’s eldest asset managers. In tandem to this agenda, Caderus Capital will also be enticing and attracting Chinese investors to both private and institutional money across the Russian market through the deployment of BCS’s investment platform.
