SHENZHEN, CHINA--(Marketwire - June 9, 2010) -  Barry Freeman, a Managing Director in ARC China's Shanghai office, presented as a noted speaker at The 12th China Venture Capital & Private Equity Forum held in Shenzhen, China from June 4-6. ARC China is focused on investing in China's domestic consumption‐oriented high‐growth enterprises in developing Tier II and III cities. 

The 12th China Venture Capital & Private Equity Forum brought together global investors, entrepreneurs, officials and policy-makers from central and local governments, as well as experts and professionals, to discuss the current investment landscape in China. Mr. Freeman discussed ARC China's activist investment strategy focused on the Tier II and Tier III regions of China. 

"ARC China feels that the key risks of investing in Chinese public and private companies are corporate governance, financial transparency, and control over the exit of our investment," Mr. Freeman commented. "We require an active role in these three areas for all of our portfolio companies. ARC China has found Chinese entrepreneurs to be very receptive to our advice as they understand the long-term, mutually beneficial value that is created by implementing systems and processes supporting these key areas."

The Forum was hosted by the Central Committee of China National Democratic Construction Association, the Ministry of Science and Technology, People's Government of Guangdong Province, and People's Government of Shenzhen Municipality. For more information please visit
