Is it time to get back into China Investments

Leave a comment

According to Jim O’Neil , now is the time to invest in China. If you have assets with China it’s a good time to hold and if you have cash readily available China is an opportunity to invest in.

Here are some reasons why to invest in China (O’Neil, 2012):

  • Trade balance is at a high of 27.7 billion
  • stronger than expected exports of 9.9%
  • 9 months to the month of September trade surplus at about 150 billion, 2.5% of GDP
  • Retail sales increased more than expected 14.2%


O’Neil is predicting that GDP will be about 7.7-7.8% and 7.1% for the full decade. Whether O’Neil is right or wrong today China’s economy is becoming more influential and long-term China should be a main holding in everyone’s portfolio.
