Financial Times: RWR CEO Roger Robinson Comments on Executive Order Targeting Investments in Chinese Companies

On June 4, 2021, the Finan­cial Times pub­lished an arti­cle on amend­ments made by the Biden Admin­is­tra­tion to Exec­u­tive Order 13959 that placed invest­ment pro­hi­bi­tions for Amer­i­cans on cer­tain Chi­nese com­pa­nies deter­mined to be involved in the Chi­nese defense sec­tor or sur­veil­lance tech­nol­o­gy. RWR’s CEO, Roger Robin­son, observed, “At first glance, it’s quite an extra­or­di­nary list of Chi­nese cor­po­rate names. The momen­tum begun by the pre­vi­ous admin­is­tra­tion on cap­i­tal mar­kets sanc­tions appears to have been sus­tained and built on.”
