China, Japan and Korea

Rothschild’s long-standing presence in China dates back to 1838, and we were one of the first business institutions from the Western world to re-establish relations after 1953.

Our offices in Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong give us direct access to the Chinese market. Our locally based team of advisory bankers commands an in-depth knowledge of the country’s economic development and the challenges facing its industries.
Through many years advising China’s multinationals, state-owned and private enterprises, we have developed an exceptional understanding of the local regulatory and market environment. Our team is skilled at bridging the cultural gaps that sometimes exist between the managements of foreign and local companies.
Senior bankers lead every assignment from start to finish, ensuring that all clients benefit from Rothschild’s intellectual capital and global network of contacts and industry sector expertise.
In the wider north Asia region, we advise on cross-border transactions concerning Korean companies through our strategic partnership with Samsung Securities, and on those concerning Japanese companies through our strategic partnership with Global Advisory Japan.

Our recent notable assignments in China include advising General Nice and Minmetals Cheerglory on the US$238 million subscription of new shares in IRC and 15-year long term offtake agreements, CITIC Securities on the acquisition of 19.9% stake in CLSA and the granting of a put option in relation to acquisition of the remaining 80.1% stake in CLSA for a total value of US$1.25 billion, Bright Food on the acquisition of a 60% stake in Weetabix from Lion Capital at an EV of £1.2 billion, and Alibaba Group on the US$2.5 billion privatisation and delisting of Limited from the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. In Japan, we advised Sprint Nextel on its merger with SoftBank whereby Softbank invested approximately $21.6 billion in Sprint Nextel, Toyota Tsusho Corporation on its €2.3 billion acquisition of CFAO from PPR, and Valeo on its disposal of its Access Mechanisms business to U-Shin.
