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.

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.
