The Russia-China Investment Fund (RCIF) is a private equity fund that aims to generate competitive returns by investing in projects that advance bilateral economic cooperation between Russia and China.
The Fund was established in June 2012 by two government-backed investment vehicles –
the Russian Direct Investment Fund and China Investment Corporation (CIC).
The fund received $2 billion in commitments from RDIF and CIC in equal share, with up to an additional $2 billion expected to be raised from international institutional investors.
RCIF focuses on projects that foster economic cooperation between the two nations and will invest at least 70% of its capital in Russia and CIS countries and up to 30% in China.
The Fund’s management team consists of top investment professionals with deep knowledge of the Russian and Chinese markets.
