|D.E. Shaw & Co, a New York-based hedge fund manager and investment advisor, is said to be in talks to acquire a 15 to 20 percent stake in Tianjin TEDA International Holding (Group) Co, a Chinese state-controlled investment company. The negotiations, which have not been made public by either D.E. Shaw or TEDA International, could reach 6 billion yuan or close to $1 billion. Earlier this month, D.E. Shaw took part in the IPO of New China Life Insurance Company, investing around $150 million.|
If this deal materializes, it will represent the most significant investment by a foreigner into China’s financial services industry since the first quarter of 2011.
