China

Investing with knowledge

 

China is changing. It is on the path to become the world’s leading superpower. Even if it doesn’t feature in your portfolio, its economy will impact your investments. There has never been a more important time to have China on your watchlist and an experienced partner to help you uncover the opportunities.

From factory to laboratory

Influential decision makers, senior policymakers, industry experts and UBS analysts gathered over two days to deliver unparalleled insights into the country’s transformation.

From quantity to quality

China has shifted from agriculture, via a ‘me too’ economy – manufacturing products designed elsewhere, or imitating what others have created – to a world-leader in research and innovation. Its strategic importance has inspired our series of articles in partnership with the Wall Street Journal. We explore how the country’s changing the game in fields such as healthcare, manufacturing and pollution control.

For example, iCarbonX is a healthcare company looking to the 22nd century. Its ‘Meum’ app aims to use algorithms to analyse genetic, biological and other data to create personalised health plans for its users. It’s already attracted more than $600m in investments and is symbolic of the new, innovative China.
