China Investment halts European debt buying on crisis concerns

China Investment Corp. has stopped buying European government debt because of an economic crisis on the continent, though it continues to look for new investments there, said CIC President Gao Xiqing.

“What is happening in Europe right now is of course of concern,” Gao said yesterday in an interview in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, during the World Economic Forum on Africa. “We still have our people looking at opportunities in Europe, even though we don’t want to buy any government bonds.”

European leaders are struggling to contain a debt crisis that has entered its third year and led to bailouts of Greece, Portugal and Ireland. Officials have pledged to tighten fiscal frameworks amid concern the situation would envelop Italy and Spain, the euro region’s third- and fourth-biggest economies.

The sovereign wealth fund would “love” to boost investments in Africa, he said. The company is limited in how much it can invest in Africa because the projects are not large enough to fit its investment criteria, he said.

The fund is boosting investments outside of China as it seeks to increase returns on the nation’s foreign currency reserves and secure commodity supplies. The Chinese government injected about US$50-billion this year in the sovereign wealth fund, Gao said. The government has not made a decision on whether to regularly inject capital into the company, he said.

“Right now, we are busy enough, so we don’t worry terribly about recapitalization,” he said. “In the long run, we should do something about it.”

Poorest Continent

The company only considers investments of at least about US$100-million in African companies and wants to take no more than a 10% stake in them, he said. There are not many companies outside of the mining industry in Africa that fit those criteria, making spending on the world’s poorest continent a challenge, he said.

The ventures need to have a return that is on average about 200 basis points, or 2 percentage points, more than investments in the developed world, he said.

CIC will buy 25% of former South African politician Cyril Ramaphosa’s Shanduka Group for 2-billion rand (US$251-million), the company said on Dec. 22.
