More than 30 Chinese companies listed on U.S. exchanges in 2020 and 14 of them had UP Fintech serve as an underwriter for their offerings, including high-profile companies such as Xpeng Motors and Li Auto. As a next generation fintech firm itself, UP Fintech understands the challenges that new economy businesses face and is able to offer solutions and value-added services tailored to the specific needs of corporate clients. Due to its strong market insights and natural connection to entrepreneurs in the technology landscape, after commencing its investment banking business just three years ago, UP Fintech was number one in the world by deal count for underwriting Chinese ADR issuers in both 2019 and 2020.
Since becoming a notable market participant for providing investment banking services to Chinese firms pursuing an overseas listing, UP Fintech has developed a diverse range of institutional customers to whom it may market the shares of new issuers. UP Fintech's investment banking network now covers over 500 institutions in the United States, Canada, and Asia-Pacific. In addition, by leveraging its growing base of retail investors, UP Fintech is able to provide substantial demand for the shares of new issuers.
Besides underwriting Chinese ADR issuers, in 2020 UP Fintech also participated in Warner Music's IPO in the U.S., and served as a joint bookrunner for the international offerings of NetEase, New Oriental Education & Technology, Harbour Biomed, Antengene, and Genor Biopharma's listings in Hong Kong. As UP Fintech continues to win accolades and participate in a diverse range of listings, it simultaneously provides more investment opportunities for retail investors and institutional clients.
