Fosun have provided funds for Wolves to try to earn promotion to the Premier League, and the West Midlands outfit currently sit at the top of the Championship standings.
However, should Wolves fail to secure top-flight football for next season, the club will likely have to sell players in order to comply with FFP regulations in the Football League.
Shi says that he remains happy with Wolves' financial work, however, and is comfortable with showing "ambition" to take the club to the next level.
"The loss is the nature of the league. Other clubs if they had real ambition they would lose money too. We have less TV rights revenue but the quality of the league is higher and higher," he told the Express & Star.
"The quality is even higher than the Portuguese league, so the quality is higher and if you want to get promoted you need high quality players, so you have to pay, but in the meantime, the TV right revenue is not only far behind the Premier League, it's far behind the French league and the Italian league. But we're recruiting players from those leagues.
"So on transfer business we're on an equal level, especially with the French league. But the revenue we get is far behind them. That's the problem with the league, so we have to take the loss."
Ahead of Tuesday's fixture with Reading, Wolves only hold a three-point advantage over second-placed Cardiff City.
