Chinese Internet giant 十cent has improved its 金融科技 chops with the acquisition of a license to conduct third-party fund sales by one of its wholly owned subsidiaries.
深圳证监会上周批准了十’从事证券投资中国体彩销售业务的腾安信息科技（深圳）有限公司以及该公司’s name change to “Ten’腾安中国体彩销售（深圳）有限公司。
十’an is a fully owned subsidiary of 十cent that was established on 3 January 2017, and is responsible for running the company’的著名财富管理平台理财通（qian.qq.com）
Clients could also use Licaitong to purchase funds via HowBuy Wealth Management (好买财富), a third-party fund sales entity in which 十cent is the biggest shareholder, with 25.69% equity stake.
According to funds sector analysts however, 十cent’与建立第三方中国体彩销售实体的股权相比，建立自己的全资中国体彩销售公司无疑具有优势。
“在监管趋紧的背景下，成立全资第三方中国体彩销售公司更符合监管要求…阿里巴巴，百度和腾讯都喜欢建立自己的全资或股份控制公司，因为这样可以更轻松地控制整个局面，”一家中国体彩公司电子商务部门的一位高管说 stcn.com .
According to the executive 十cent’在其自己的全资子公司获得适当的许可之前，使用HowBuy只是临时权宜之计。
“Tencent attempted to team up with Hillhouse Capital Group in 2015 to establish a publicly offered fund, so we can see that 十cent has long had ambitions for the publicly offered funds sector, and grabbing a fund sales license is a part of its long-term plan.”
中国’的互联网巨头都在争夺该国的统治权’s burgeoning 金融科技 sector, with 十cent already making forays into payments, banking, wealth management, insurance, securities and micro-loans, yet currently lacking a publicly offered funds license.
The new license is expected to give a boost to fund sales via Licaitong, which has access to the more than 980 million active users of 十cent’的即时通讯工具微信。
