Internet Wealth Management Industry

Internet wealth management refers to the service pattern in which relevant companies carry out cooperation with financial institutions to put provide wealth management products (including funds, insurance, trust, bills) online through internet technology and platform, thus realizing Internet-based wealth management.

Since Alibaba launched Internet wealth management products in Jun 2013, Internet companies, fund management companies, banks, and independent fund sales institutions have launched their own Internet wealth management products, basically all money funds. By asset size, Yu’ebao managed by Ant Financial under Alibaba is far bigger than other competing products. By the end of Jun 2015, Yu’ebao users hit 149 million, and asset size amounted to RMB613.381 billion, seizing 25.4% of the money fund market share and 41.9% of the Internet wealth management product market share.

With introduction of easy monetary policies by China’s central bank in the second half of 2014, the yields of Internet wealth management products have fallen sharply, and a single money fund cannot fulfill peoples’ demand for wealth management. Accordingly, Internet wealth management platforms introduced other wealth management products, such as bond funds, blend funds, equity funds, bills, insurance, loans, stocks, etc.

At present, main Internet wealth management platforms in China include Ant Financial’s Zhao Cai Bao, JD Finance’s financial channel, Tencent’ Li Cai Hui, and Baidu Finance. Zhao Cai Bao gets the lion’s share in Internet wealth management market based on 300 million real-name Yu’ebao users.
