    Brexit Attracted More Chinese Healthcare Investments in the UK and Europe

    Data from Beyond Lab suggest that Chinese Investors increased their invetsment activities in the UK, especially in the Life Sciences and Healthcare sectors.

    Despite the total outbound investments from China had a big decrease (more than 50% according to Bloomberg) in 2017, compared to 2016 due to government’s currency control, the investment from China into the Healthcare sectors actually had a big increase in term of deal number (66.6%) and total investment amount (116.3%, see below).

    More evidences and better understanding might be necessary to draw a clear conclusion that Brexit could attract more investment from China, but clearly UK enterprises in the life sciences and healthcare sector could benefit more and consider China as the alternative capital source when they reach out for fund raising.
