TAIPEI, Taiwan – It was the ultimate success story of China Inc 20: A privately held technology startup turned into an internet juggernaut that entered the Chinese market and set its sights on the world

Chinese regulators on Thursday announced a lengthy antitrust investigation into their most successful internet company, which could take action that could potentially destroy Alibaba’s sprawling e-commerce business or fragment its highly lucrative financial services subsidiary

While Alibaba has become the dominant player in Chinese online shopping over the past decade and now has annual sales of $ 50 billion, it has steadily intervened in China’s tightly controlled financial sector through the spin-off of the Ant Group

Ant Group, a $ 16 billion company, has squashed the market share of powerful state banks and unsettled regulators with investment and credit products that have become so popular that Ant sometimes acts as a lender to government banks not the other way around

The corporations have come together in a huge, loosely connected conglomerate under the control of billionaire Jack Ma, China’s richest man, that could challenge the state itself

On Thursday, the state protested against China’s state market regulator, saying it would investigate complaints from online retailers about Alibaba’s claims for an exclusivity deal

In a simultaneous announcement, banking regulators said they would invite Ant Group executives to discuss the financial platform’s competition and consumer protection practices
