CIC buys warehouse company

CHINA’S sovereign wealth fund is expanding its presence in Europe by acquiring a warehouse company in a 12.25 billion euro (US$13.8 billion) deal.

China Investment Corp’s purchase of Logicor from US investment firm Blackstone Group adds to a multibillion-dollar string of Chinese acquisitions in Europe.

Logicor operates in 17 countries including Britain, Germany and France. Blackstone said the company was “ideally positioned” to profit from growth in e-commerce.

Chinese companies are in the midst of a multibillion-dollar global buying spree to acquire brands, technology and real estate.

They are especially active in Europe, which they see as more welcoming than the United States, where security reviews of some Chinese purchases have made potential buyers skittish.

CIC was founded in 2007 to invest a portion of China’s foreign reserves. It has more than US$810 billion in assets.
