Chinese tech companies planning to list on the mainland are set to receive a multibillion-dollar boost, reports Reuters, after the government approved the launch of six mutual funds aimed specifically at the high-profile flotations.
The three-year lock-up open-ended funds will be allowed to become “strategic investors” in the upcoming listings of companies such as Xiaomi, Alibaba Group and JD.com, to which Chinese investors currently only have limited access to.
