At the frontier of China’s economic evolution

Our Investment Banking Department (IBD) is committed to establishing a long-term partnership of mutual trust and benefits with high profile clients, including central state-owned enterprises, local state-owned enterprises, private enterprises and multinational companies. Adhering to our client-oriented principles, we strive to create value for all clients through a full range of first-rate financing solutions and financial advisory services, based on our profound insights in China and our franchise.

Since its inception, CICC IBD has been at the frontier of China’s economic evolution. We have supported the execution of China’s national strategies and embraced historical opportunities, including comprehensive registration-based system reform, mixed ownership reform, supply-side reform, the Belt and Road Initiative and the development and opening up of China’s capital market. By continuously refining our financial expertise, we have closed a broad range of deals covering the industries of finance, energy, military, transportation and construction, as well as new sectors such as TMT, medical and pharmaceuticals, high-end manufacturing and consumption.

As China’s economy enters a new era, the private sector led by innovative entrepreneurs is gradually becoming an essential driver of the economy. In response to new clients seeking financial services, the Growth Enterprises Investment Banking Department (GI) is dedicated to comprehensive and sophisticated capital market activities for privately held enterprises and growth enterprises. Industry groups are committed to exploring opportunities in emerging industries, increasing our local presence and strengthening our global network. We have also established a debt restructuring management group to provide assistance for the government and enterprises to resolve risks.
