  On Oct. 19, 2015, GF International Asset Management (“GF International”), a subsidiary of GF Fund Management, is delighted to announce its launch in the UK. GF International is the first wholly Chinese-owned investment manager to establish itself in Europe. It has chosen London for the first stage of its expansion strategy outside Asia, positioning it at the forefront of China’s continuing economic transformation. GF International recently received authorisation from the FCA enabling it to act as an investment manager across Europe.

  Chuanhui Lin, CEO of GF Fund Management, said: “Our company’s establishment in the UK bridges investment management between China and Europe. The strong growth of the Chinese economy presents exciting prospects for European clients. Additionally, as Chinese investors become more sophisticated, their need for global diversification is increasing. We are entering a golden era in China-UK relations, making GF International well-positioned for success.”
