With funds under management exceeding 26 billion yuan, the company’s mission is to support the sectors of the companies that it invests in and to build these companies into national brands.
As the most committed practitioner of empowerment investment, Harvest Capital has consistently provided companies with long-term comprehensive financial solutions, strategic consulting services, and efficiency improvement solutions. The firm’s customers include Eastroc Beverage Group (Beverages), Laiyifen (Snack retail), Aimer Lingerie (Underwear clothing), Zhongyin Babi Food (Breakfast retail), Qiaqia Food (Fried nuts), Jiajia Food (Condiment), Easyhome New Retail Group (Home building materials retail), Meituan (Life service platform), Jinmailang (Instant food), Small Can Tea (Tea brand), Home Original Chicken (Chinese fast food chain), Wenheyou (Cultural and creative catering), NewPearl Ceramics Group (Ceramic wall and floor tiles) and Didi (Car hailing services).
The opening of the HK office is expected to help Harvest Capital better connect with domestic and foreign capital markets as well as serve domestic and foreign entrepreneurs and investors more efficiently. In addition, the office will serve as an intermediary by coordinating resources in and outside of China, assisting them with overseas communications, helping them improve capital and time efficiency, while enhancing the overall quality of their products and services.
Harvest Capital expects that having a presence in Hong Kong will allow the firm to fully leverage the city’s advantages as a global financial center, as well as the many favorable policies enacted in the Special Administrative Region.
Furthermore, the new office will actively collaborate with the relevant upstream and downstream players and various government departments to help more Chinese consumer goods and services providers find their place in international capital markets and achieve greater commercial value.
