BHR kicked off its fall marketing campaign on October 28, 2015 with its inaugural cross-border seminar attended by a select group of corporate partners, fund partners and friends from various professional circles. Keynote speeches on the challenges and opportunities presented in today’s outbound investment environment were delivered with such enthusiasm as were only rivalled by the degree with which they were received. Jonathan Fritz, Minister Counselor for Economic Affairs of the U.S. Embassy in China, gave his entire speech on Sino-U.S. cross-border investments in Chinese to the surprise and amazement of the audience and Professor Wang Hua of the KEDGE Business School entranced the audience with his insightful perspective on the global M&A market and its projected trends. Xinzhong Li, team leader of Project Hanson, provided a poignant play-by-play of the adventures that led to fructification of the Henniges acquisition. The seminar concluded with a heated round-table discussion hosted by our own Jonathan Li, with help from our friends at Deutsche Bank, White & Case and PWC, on the pragmatic and operational challenges of overseas investments faced by Chinese investors.
