Goldman Sachs to buy biggest share of Huarong stake?

For Sale

Goldman Sachs is leading the race to take the biggest share of a stake in China Huarong Asset Management Co, according to reports.

Bloomberg News reports that Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley and Deutsche Bank have held talks about investing in Huarong Asset’s $1.5bn share sale ahead of a planned listing in Hong Kong next year, the FT said.

The newspaper cited another unnamed banker as saying only a few meetings had been held and a deal is not expected until December.

Eddie Naylor, a spokesman for Goldman Sachs, declined to comment. Jeremy Hughes, a Deutsche Bank spokesman, declined to immediately comment. A Morgan Stanley spokeswoman couldn’t immediately be reached for comment. Phone calls to Beijing-based China Huarong’s press office went unanswered.

Huarong Asset said in October it would seek Chinese and foreign strategic investors and sell shares in local and overseas markets.
