The outbreak of covid-19 has put greater pressure on Chinese real estate developers’ cashflows and their ability to refinance existing loans. According to Dealogic, developers will have to pay around $20 billion of US dollar bonds maturing before the end of this year. In the third in a series of PERE Asia On-Demand webcasts, two managers and an advisor active in the country’s real estate financing space discuss what opportunities they see in the Chinese debt market and what investors should be aware of in their underwritings.
The webcast features Johnny Chen, chief operating officer, Paladin Capital Management, Grant Chien, head of special situations financing, InfraRed NF Investment Advisers and James Dilley, partner, PwC. It is moderated by PERE’s reporter in Asia, Christie Ou.
