Goldman Sachs launches Chinese infrastructure real estate joint venture – Reuters

HONG KONG, Oct 24 (Reuters) – Goldman Sachs (GS.N) has launched a joint venture in China with local logistics company Sunjade in a bid to boost investment in Chinese logistics and infrastructure real estate assets, the U.S. bank said on Monday.

The bank is forming the new unit via its investment arm Goldman Sachs Asset Management, which has invested more than $50 billion globally in real estate businesses, according to a company statement.

It did not disclose the shareholding structure or capital commitment to the platform.

The joint venture, which focuses on projects located in China’s first-tier cities and surrounding areas, has invested in a 240,000-square-meter project with four institutional-grade warehouse assets located in Shanghai and its neighbouring area.

The U.S. bank said the new platform will benefit from China’s rising demand for new high-quality infrastructure assets, in particular institutional-quality warehousing space driven by e-commerce and the diversification of industrial requirements supported by government policies.
