Silk Road International Development Fund


Silk Road Chamber of International Commerce (SRCIC) is dedicated to initiate activities that would be beneficial to international trading, cultural exchanges and project cooperation along the Belt and Road. One of the initiatives is the Silk Road International development Fund (SRIDF).


  • SRIDF aims to fund commercially viable deals introduced primarily by SRCIC members. Country sub-fund could be set up to facilitate the development of local projects and drive regional economic growth. 



  • SRIDF’s edge will be its ability to bridge investment opportunities along the Belt and Road to the international capital markets. It targets to bring in major Chinese companies and international institutional investors as anchor investors. Liquidity from affluent developing regions could then be channeled to the parts in need to unleash their developing potential.


  •  Its flexibility to invest across capital structures allows SRIDF to invest where it makes the most sense from a risk-adjusted return perspective and look at timely strategies. SRIDF will work with anchor investors and strategic investors to source and structure deals, mitigate risk and execute exit strategies via trade sales, IPO and in certain larger transactions restructuring to potential investors and other funds.


  •  In 2017, SRIDF already signed MOUs with two sovereign funds of the Belt and Road countries to further explore cooperation in their respective territories.
