Lufax CEO Envisions Potential IPO and Annual Growth Over 50%

In an interview on November 7, CEO Gregory Gibb of Lufax, China’s largest P2P lender and wealth management platform, said he could envision an IPO to support worldwide expansion; he did not provide further details; reporting elsewhere claims that four banks have been selected to sponsor an IPO on the Hong Kong stock exchange; when Lufax raised US$1.2 billion in January, the company was valued at $18 billion; while the market as a whole is expected to grow between 30% and 40% in 2016, Gibb noted that increasing regulation of the industry in China should give added momentum to leaders like Lufax, which Gibb expects to grow “north of 50%” in the next year.  Source
