It's reported that, in September, Mr. Cameron met with Ma Kai of the Chinese Finance Ministry to discuss the £500 million fund.
The project apparently has links to fellow Conservative, Lord Chadlington, who joined Mr. Cameron on his September trip to China.
We understand that Mr. Cameron could ultimately accept a senior role of employment within the fund.
His office told the Daily Mail over the weekend that the former Prime Minister had consulted the British Advisory Committee on Business Appointments about such a position.
During his time in office, David Cameron was a keen proponent of strengthening ties between the UK and China.
It was during his tenure that agreements were signed to enable Chinese partnership in new nuclear power projects in Britain, and numerous investment deals between the two countries were signed.
Mr. Cameron also welcomed Chinese President Xi Jinping to the United Kingdom during his 2015 visit to the country.
