GCP introduced its first RMB-denominated strategy in 2017 to meet the growing demand from domestic institutional investors for income-producing logistics and industrial assets in China.

Since then, the company has expanded its onshore MB funds business to RMB 128 billion across 20+ strategies across real assets and private equity. Collectively, GCP manages approximately $58 billion AUM in China for a global and diverse set of over 90 institutional private capital partners including more than 60 domestic institutional investors.
