Chinese insurer Anbang raised its bid for Starwood Hotels & Resorts to $14bn in its latest effort to trump a rival offer from Marriott International, reported the Financial Times.

Starwood is reluctant to accept Anbang’s offer amid Chinese media reports that Anbang’s US deals were at risk of being blocked by local regulators.
