One Ant at a time
All eyes are on Ant – at least in the IPO world. The company has catapulted to the fore of the financial industry in China and helped define a fintech landscape.

The appeal of a one-stop shop is strong; with that, managers will need to remain vigilant in order to craft a flexible and sustainable distribution.
