KPMG had been working with a Gupta family company in the mining sector, Oakbay Resources and Energy, for 15 years prior to the revelations of corruption and collusion 会计师事务所 in 2016, at which point KPMG resigned.

And as long as U.S. regulators lack the focus to put their feet down and do their jobs, Chinese companies of all shades of ethical standards will continue to list in New York, and bankers will happily continue to make money off them. With Ant Group’s snub of the New York Stock Exchange and Nasdaq to opt for a simultaneous dual listing in Hong Kong and Shanghai, Wall Street will be fighting extra hard for IPO business from China. Even from my simple description of the IPO business model above, it’s not hard to see that the process is problematic, specifically in its “dual-agency” setup where the bankers are representing the interests of both sides of the table.

But what about all the pending legislation and harsh rhetoric against Chinese companies from the U.S. government? Just like the whole ByteDance ordeal — which now seems to be in suspended animation — I suspect the noise from the U.S.
