Company background

Fosun International is a publicly traded arm of Fosun Group, a private investment firm in Shanghai that was founded by four students of Fudan University in 1992, then listed in Hong Kong in 2007. Chairman Guo Guangchang majored in philosophy at Fudan University before becoming an investor. His hobby is tai chi.

Fosun International grew by taking over a good number of companies and presides over real estate and steel companies, Greek jewelry brand Folli Follie, French resort operator Club Med and an insurance company that used to be a group firm of Portuguese saving bank Caixa Geral de Depositos. It also owns a stake in Cirque du Soleil, the popular neocircus troupes out of Canada.

The company intends to position its insurance arm as a core unit and use its ample funds to invest in businesses that will serve Chinese with rising incomes.

It is also actively investing in real estate and other businesses in Japan. In 2014, Fosun Property bought Japanese firm Idera Capital Management. Fosun has since purchased several office buildings in central Tokyo via Idera.
