What we know about the JD Digits IPO
There's speculation that digital technology company JD Digits is planning an IPO on Shanghai's STAR Market.
While the IPO is expected to happen in 2020, it's too early to tell if the suspension of Ant Group's IPO will affect investor appetite or the timeline for th JD Digits IPO. While JD Digits is a much smaller company, with an expected valuation just below USD$3 billion, the two companies are competitors and the IPOs have been closely compared in the media.
When the IPO does move forward, US investors will need an international brokerage account with access to Shanghai stocks, like Moomoo or Interactive Brokers, to buy in.
