China Merchants Bank and Taylor-DeJongh have signed a cooperation agreement, whereby a mutually beneficial cooperation of the parties will help realise Chinese-American trade and investment projects and facilitate the development of economic relations between China and the US, including those under the framework of the existing inter-governmental agreements.
China Merchants Bank is one of the leading commercial banks in mainland China and the largest one listed and traded on the Shanghai Securities Exchange. It is the sixth largest bank, the most technologically advanced and the most profitable bank in mainland China and has extensive experience in trade and project finance. 
The formation of this partnership demonstrates the depth of commitment of both firms to the growing capital requirements and the attractive opportunities throughout the power, LNG, oil and gas, petrochemical and water and wastewater sectors in mainland China, claims Taylor-DeJongh. In addition, the agreement anticipates cooperation of the parties in such areas as international capital markets, trade and pre-export financing for Chinese companies.
Terry Newendorp, chairman and CEO of Taylor-DeJongh, says, “The teaming of China Merchants Bank’s balance sheet strength [assets of US$60.5bn as of end of 2003] and TDJ’s expertise in structured and project finance, capital raising, M&A and energy sector investment banking, is a powerful combination for companies investing into the Greater China area and for Chinese companies seeking to expand abroad.”
Taylor-DeJongh is one of the top independent financial advisers in the world and provides global merchant banking and financial structuring services to a multinational clientele in the development, structuring, negotiating and financing of major capital investments around the world.
