China Investment Corp. (CIC), the mainland’s $575 billion sovereign wealth fund, is shifting its focus away from the energy sector towards investments in infrastructure in both developed and emerging markets, said Chairman and CEO Ding Xuedong.
“I am interested in investment opportunities in infrastructure around the world. In the next 5-10 years, infrastructure investment will be a big theme for both emerging and developed markets. So, we want to increase our investment to get better returns,” Ding told CNBC on Tuesday.
CIC is also eyeing potential investment opportunities in agriculture and real estate, he added.
