Despite a slowdown in economic growth and uncertainty about US policy, the outlook for Chinese businesses remains positive, according to Kate Richdale, co-head of the Asia Ex-Japan Investment Banking Division at Goldman Sachs. Richdale explains that Chinese corporations are strategically navigating China’s economic headwinds to stay strong, in part by raising debt offshore and deploying cross-border M&A strategies. 

Chinese corporations remain extremely strong. Operationally their businesses are going well…. For our clients, they see this as very much related to what they’re doing from an M&A perspective. A lot of them have business rationale for going overseas, acquiring entities overseas, and the ability to raise debt offshore is very, very important.
