Besides the subscription agreement, the two companies also signed a strategic cooperation framework agreement on Wednesday, committed to join hands in tilling the financial service sector.

In addition, CICC said the two companies will establish a steering committee co-chaired by the senior executives of both sides to promote the effective implementation of the cooperation.

"The cooperation is expected to enable CICC to better leverage fintech to accelerate the transformation of our wealth management platform and provide more differentiated financial solutions to our clients," CICC CEO Bi Mingjian said in the announcement.
