CITIC Capital Silk Road Fund Invests In Pan-Eurasian Logistics Service Providers

LI DONGMEIMay 29, 2018 — 12:52 HKT

CITIC Capital Silk Road Fund, a pan-Eurasia themed fund managed by CITIC Capital Holdings Limited, said it had recently completed its investments into Shanghai Railink International Intermodal Logistics and Atasu Group respectively.

Railink and Atasu are logistics services companies serving the growing trades between China and Europe via Central Asia and Kazakhstan.

CITIC Capital Silk Road Fund investments will support further development of logistics service networks, as well as serving as capital expenditure for both companies. No financial details were disclosed in an announcement released today.

In addition to the investment, Atasu also received long-term debt financing from the European Bank of Reconstruction and Development, according to the announcement.

Railink and Atasu provide complementary services to companies based across China, Central Asia, and Europe, all of which are key regions under China’s Railway Express development project.

The investments seek to unlock further synergies between both businesses, leveraging each company’s strengths in its respective markets to provide a more comprehensive suite of services.

"CITIC Capital has been an early mover seeking to unlock the synergies between China and its trading neighbors," said Fanglu Wang, Managing Partner of CITIC Capital Silk Road Fund. "The transport and logistics service sector is a key element in regional commercial exchange. The migration of production capacity from China’s coastal to inland regions, increasing demand from pan-Eurasian countries, as well as the rapid growth in the China-Europe rail cargo volume have together provided tremendous investment opportunities from both ends."

Wang added that the firm will keep looking for investment opportunities in this space.

CITIC Capital Silk Road Fund is a pan-Eurasia themed fund managed by CITIC Capital with a focus on energy and resources efficiency, food and water safety, as well as transport and logistics services.

Since 2010, the fund is now targeting broader markets in the Commonwealth of Independent States region, as well as Eastern Europe and Southeast Asia. The fund is sponsored by CITIC Group as a cornerstone investor

The Rise of China-Europe RailwaysMarch 6, 2018The Dawn of a New Commercial Era?For over two millennia, technology and politics have shaped trade across the Eurasian supercontinent. The compass and domesticated camels helped the “silk routes” emerge between 200 and 400 CE, and peaceful interactions between the Han and Hellenic empires allowed overland trade to flourish. A major shift occurred in the late fifteenth century, when the invention of large ocean-going vessels and new navigation methods made maritime trade more competitive. Mercantilism and competition among Europe’s colonial powers helped pull commerce to the coastlines. Since then, commerce between Asia and Europe has traveled primarily by sea.1Against this historical backdrop, new railway services between China and Europe have emerged rapidly. Just 10 years ago, regular direct freight services from China to Europe did not exist.2 Today, they connect roughly 35 Chinese…
