Fosun Becomes Largest Shareholder In Portugal’s Largest Bank
Fosun has acquired 16.7% of Millennium BCP, making it the biggest shareholder in the largest listed bank in Portugal where it already owns the largest insurer. This deal is one of the most significant acquisitions by Chinese groups who have pumped in money to buy stakes in the electricity generation, national grid, insurance, hospitals, water and other sectors.

While the number of acquisitions by Chinese company have caused discomfort in countries like Germany, Portuguese companies and government have welcomed them as means of helping businesses with capital and debt problems after the country was bailed out in 2014.
