“Banking reform, long an oxymoron in a country of government-controlled banking system, was energized by a foreign private equity takeover. This book shares the full story. As the tenacious architect of this historic transaction, Shan provides a breathtaking account of the financialization of modern China.”
— Stephen Roach, Yale professor and former Chairman of Morgan Stanley Asia, author of Accidental Conflict: America, China, and the Clash of False Narratives

“An absolutely amazing tale! It’s highly informative and reads like a novel. A must read for anyone doing business in China. And that means almost everyone.”
— Max Baucus, United States Senator (1978–2014) and Chair of the Senate Finance Committee (2007–2014), US Ambassador to China (2014–2017)

“Money Machine is the third of Weijian Shan’s riveting memoirs. It is the inside story of how an American private equity firm took over an ailing bank in China and fixed it, before exiting in one of the most lucrative financial transactions ever—and a win for all sides involved. It is also a cautionary tale of just how much tenacity is required when it comes to investing in China—something which is as relevant today as it was over a decade ago.”
— Henny Sender, Managing Director of BlackRock, formerly Chief Correspondent for international finance at the Financial Times

“Money Machine is an instant dealmaker’s classic. The author delivers an eyewitness drama of fundamental change. Money Machine ultimately is less about money but about change. Read and learn.”
— Andrew Sheng, Distinguished Fellow, Asia Global Institute, University of Hong Kong, formerly Chairman, Hong Kong Securities and Futures Commission

An extraordinary tale of an American firm’s astounding success in China

In Money Machine: A Trailblazing American Venture in China, Weijian Shan delivers a compelling account of one of the most significant deals in private equity history: the first and only foreign acquisition of control of a Chinese national bank. Money Machine is the fascinating inside story of the transaction as told by the man who led it, from the intrigues of dealmaking to the complex and uncharted process of securing control by a foreign investor of a Chinese nationwide financial institution, a feat that had never before been attempted, nor has it been repeated.

Shan also describes the astonishingly successful turnaround of the institution under the control of the American firm: the clash of cultures, the growth to strength and profitability, and ultimately, the extraordinarily profitable exit from the investment. In the process, he reveals new insights into how finance operates in China’s capital system and how private equity firms can add real value to companies. Readers will also find:

  • A peek behind the curtain of a process usually shrouded in secrecy: private equity dealmaking and moneymaking
  • The complex negotiations between American private equity executives and Chinese regulators to implement a series of unprecedented changes
  • The riveting details of the challenges that had to be overcome to return the bank to growth and profitability

An exceptional firsthand account of truly singular deal-making and money-making, Money Machine will be of interest to investment bankers, investors, financial analysts and anyone who appreciates a suspenseful, true-life story.
