Ant Group (formerly known as Ant Financial), a subsidiary of Alibaba (09988) and parent company of Alipay, successfully passed the Hong Kong Stock Exchange (00388) listing hearing, and Hong Kong IPO entered the final straight path. Based on the latest market news, the China Securities Regulatory Commission has approved the listing of Ant Group on the Shanghai Science and Technology Innovation Board and listing in Hong Kong this week. Ant initially expects to start its IPO next Tuesday (27th), and the subscription will be closed on the 30th. The listing is tentatively scheduled for November 6. It will overlap with the iBond 2020 subscription period, which also means that the listing process of Ant will span the US presidential election (November 3).
