Please try again Article content Hidden Hill joins investors betting that Chinese firms will increasingly look abroad for growth. It aims to invest in the ecosystem that will support those future global giants, from technology services to the raw logistical support they will need to move goods around the world. China’s giant tech sector is accelerating its international push after grappling with a double-whammy of regulatory crackdowns and economic malaise at home. Emerging from the transition are a new crop of upstarts like Shein, which leverages China’s fast and cheap labor to sell clothing to US customers. Advertisement 3 Article content Hidden Hill, whose portfolio firms provide technology and platforms for such China-based but international businesses, wants a slice of that action at a time the world is fretting over the fracture of global supply chains. “We see the opportunity where, with China at its center, Asia will develop a unified supply chain to service the global market,” Higashi Michihiro, GLP chief strategy officer and Hidden Hill’s founding partner, said in an interview. “Asia will have its own UPS in the future.” Established in 2018 with offices in Shanghai and Hong Kong, Hidden Hill manages over $3.6 billion of assets across five yuan-denominated funds and two US dollar funds, it said, focusing on supply chain digitization and renewable energy. It has made bets on the logistics arms of China Eastern Airlines Corp. and China Southern Airlines Co., as well as startups like freight software developer G7 and sorting robots maker Libiao Robotics. Its main backer GLP has about $115 billion of assets under management, it said in a statement. Advertisement 4 Article content One of its latest investments is in Jet Commerce, which offers consulting, marketing and logistics services for brands and ecommerce platforms like TikTok and Sea Ltd.’s Shopee. In August, the Hangzhou startup said it raised $60 million from investors including Hidden Hill and ByteDance Ltd.-backed Jinqiu Capital, without disclosing its valuation. Another Hidden Hill investee, ZongTeng Group, is a key logistics partner to ByteDance and Shein.

Growing tensions between the US and China have driven investors to look at regional clusters like Southeast Asia. “We always have an exit plan in mind for our investors,” said Richard Dong, another founding partner at Hidden Hill. “The point of bringing Chinese firms overseas is not only about giving them a new revenue stream, it’s also about offering our LPs another window to exit under the current macro environment.”
