CHARLOTTE, North Carolina, Aug. 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Dixon Hughes Goodman, a leading U.S. accounting and advisory firm, is launching DHG China Resources in response to China’s status as the fastest growing market and second largest economy in the world. DHG China Resources has offices in the U.S., and Shanghai, China.
Keith Giddens, President/CEO, DHG China Resources – LEADING U.S. CERTIFIED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM LAUNCHES DHG CHINA RESOURCES TO BRING CHINESE AND U.S. BUSINESS TOGETHER
According to the Rhodium Group, Chinese foreign direct investment in the U.S., has grown more than ten-fold since 2008, with the average deal value increasing from $16 million in 2008 to more than $100 million in 2013.
“Chinese investors have a ‘go big or go home’ investment philosophy for U.S. deals,” noted Keith Giddens, President and CEO of DHG China Resources. “This creates an immediate need for professional services, including accounting and advisory services, investment banking, legal counsel and more.”
DHG China Resources will present its first round of seminars October 13-24, 2014, in China. These two-day events create an international forum for Chinese investors to connect with U.S. professional services providers offering strategies for successful U.S. investment. The events also provide U.S. companies a chance to meet prospective clients, offering more reach and lower development costs than individual initiatives. The two-day seminars in October will include presentations by Dixon Hughes Goodman, Gray Construction, Development Advisors LLC, Willis and HSBC.
“Our seminars give U.S. companies a low-risk, high-value way to develop lasting relationships,” Giddens said. “Face to face meetings are a critical part of due diligence, particularly with professional service providers, so we are making a serious commitment to this important investor market, with bilingual, bicultural professionals and offices in Shanghai and the U.S. We anticipate other professional service providers will see the benefits of early engagement with Chinese investors and participate in these events.”
DHG China Resources represents an extension of Dixon Hughes Goodman’s investment in Chinese Business Services, which provides accounting, tax and consulting services to China inbound investment and supporting U.S. investment in China. Dixon Hughes Goodman’s Chinese Business Services brings together professionals who understand Chinese and American accounting standards to reduce taxes on earnings, enhance margins and grow businesses through a wide variety of compliance and advisory services. Dixon Hughes Goodman’s employee base of Chinese speakers continues to grow in the U.S., especially throughout the Southeast, with more than 15 native Chinese speakers throughout the firm’s footprint.
Following the October events, the next seminar series will be presented in China in January 2015. To learn more about these seminars and the value of being a presenting or exhibiting advisor, visit www.dhgchinaresources.com.
