The increased oversight on Chinese technology giants may had been triggered by Jack’s Ma speech, highlighting outdated supervision of China’s financial regulations that was attended by many financial leaders and regulators at the Bund Summit on the 24th October 2020.

Ant Group planned IPO was subsequently suspended by both Shanghai and Hong Kong Exchange on 3rd November 2021, for failure in major issues including meeting listing conditions and information disclosure requirement.

The planned IPO would have raised $34.5 billion and create a Chinese financial technology giant with more than $300 billion market capitalization.  (IPO ~ Initial Public Offering)
