Wealthy Chinese want British education for their children
Britain has emerged as the most popular international location for pre-university education among wealthy Chinese families, in research that underlines London’s growing kudos as a destination for investment and schooling.

The Hurun Report, a closely watched annual survey of China’s entrepreneurs and investors, found that 29 per cent gave Britain as the ideal country for their children’s secondary education, followed by the US with 26 per cent.

Rupert Hoogewerf, Hurun Report founder, said 80 per cent of wealthy Chinese wanted to send their children abroad for their education. “It’s a phenomenon of this generation,” he said at an event on Wednesday at Bank of China’s London arm beside the Bank of England.

The influx of Chinese in Britain’s education system would have spillover effects for the rest of the economy, he added. “These people will have two years in the UK at sixth form, followed by four years at university, followed very likely by a year or two of work experience. So they’re going to have a very personal relationship with Britain for the best part of 8 years.”

The report, which questioned 393 Chinese with wealth of £1m or more, found that 64 per cent were considering emigrating – though only 15 per cent of those would consider relinquishing their nationality. The US was the top destination cited, but Europe – which Mr Hoogewerf said for most meant London – had jumped to second place, from fifth last year.

Chinese buyers are also making inroads into London’s high-end property market. Mainland Chinese buyers accounted for 4.2 per cent of prime London sales in 2013, up from 2.2 per cent in 2012, according to new data from property agent Knight Frank. The figures put the Chinese fourth in the ranking of nationalities buying in London, after India, Russia and France.

Liam Bailey, global research head at Knight Frank, said the growth had taken place over the past three years. “It reflects the increasing economic presence of Chinese firms in London, with a confidence gathering pace that London is the key European city market.”

英国已成为最受中国富裕家庭欢迎的大学前课程留学目的地。研究显示,伦敦作为投资和教育目的地的名声日益提升。

《胡润报告》(Hurun Report)是一份受到密切关注的有关中国企业家和投资者的年度调查报告,该报告发现29%的人把英国视为子女中学教育的理想国家,紧随其后的是美国,其比例为26%。

胡润百富创始人胡润(Rupert Hoogewerf)表示,80%的中国富豪希望把子女送往海外接受教育。周三,他在中国银行(BoA)位于英国央行(BoE)边上的伦敦分行的一次活动上表示:“这是这一代人中出现的现象。”

他补充说,流入英国教育系统的中国人将给英国经济的其他部门带来溢出效益。“他们将在英国接受两年高中教育,随后在大学学习四年,接着极有可能拥有一到两年的工作经历。因此,他们将在差不多8年里与英国建立极为个人化的关系。”

该报告调查了393名拥有100万英镑或更多财富的中国人,发现64%的富豪正在考虑移民海外,尽管只有15%的人会考虑放弃中国国籍。美国是他们提到的首选移民目的地,不过欧洲(胡润表示这在多数情况下意味着伦敦)已从去年的第五位跃升至第二位。

此外,中国买家正在进入伦敦高端房地产市场。根据房地产经纪商莱坊(Knight Frank)的最新数据,中国大陆买家占伦敦高端房产销售的比例从2012年的2.2%升至2013年的4.2%。这一数据令中国人成为伦敦买家的第四大国籍,排在印度、俄罗斯和法国之后。

莱坊全球研究主管利亚姆?贝利(Liam Bailey)表示,这一增长就发生在过去三年中。“它反映了中国公司在伦敦的经济存在日益增长,人们越来越确信伦敦是至关重要的欧洲城市市场。”
