Fintech, Big Tech, and the Investment Implications of China’s Regulatory Storm: What Gives?
As U.S-China relations have broken down, the Chinese state has rushed through stringent new laws and guidelines to strengthen data protection, deter monopolistic behavior as well as the security of network products and services linked to the cross-border flow of data. The zeal to limit foreign listing of key information infrastructure and core data from being maliciously exploited by an adversary is matched by an equal determination within the Beltway to shield the sensitive personal data of Americans from questionably transparent Chinese bidders as well as delist Chinese companies from major U.S. stock exchanges for a host of reasons ranging from national security risk to their failure to abide by standard audit disclosure requirements. As data and capital markets across the Pacific decouple, a number of high-profile Chinese companies, as well as American investors, have been caught in the crossfire.

In the context of these fast-moving developments, the event will discuss (a) the heady innovation in the fintech space in China and Asia, (b) the motivating factors behind the regulatory storm unleashed by the Chinese Communist Party on its home-grown Big Tech pioneers, (c) the investment implications of these stark Chinese technology regulations for American investors, and (d) the depth of sentiment against China on Capitol Hill as U.S. agencies set about bringing Chinese companies to heel on complying with U.S. legislative and regulatory requirements.
