This marks the latest development since the Shanghai Stock Exchange last week approved the listing plan, which some expect to be the world's largest IPO.

It took less than a month for the company to be granted IPO application, pass inquiry, get approval and file documents.

The financial technology firm plans to list simultaneously on Shanghai's Nasdaq-style STAR Market and in Hong Kong.

The company said revenue was 72.5 billion yuan ($10.5 billion) in the first half of the year, up nearly 40 percent compared with the same period in 2019. Profit rose nearly 12 times to 21.9 billion yuan in the same period.
