The Innovative Pharmaceutical Investment Fund was established in Suzhou New District on June 22.
As the flagship fund of Shiyu Capital, a healthcare-focused private equity investment fund, the new fund will continue to focus on China's medical industry and aims to invest its first 3 billion yuan ($470 million) in 17 projects.
Pan Yuefei, deputy director of Suzhou New District’s management committee, spoke at the opening ceremony, noting the fund would surely entice more outstanding medical companies to Suzhou.
Settling in the district's finance town, the Innovative Medical Investment Fund, together with 400 other financial institutions, will promote efficient integration of industrial and financial capital for the development of Suzhou into a national hotspot of private investment funds.
