You Could Buy The Biggest IPO In History, But You Could Make More Money With Alibaba

I get the appeal of IPOs. Who wouldn’t want to say they invested Amazon.com Inc. (AMZN) or Apple Inc. (AAPL) when they first went public? Well, over the next few months, there’s going to be a lot of hype about Ant Group, which if it hits analysts' expectations, could be the biggest IPO ever at $30 billion.

Of course, there’s a catch – shares will be listed in Hong Kong and Shanghai, making the Ant IPO out of reach for most U.S. investors. However, I have a way to own shares of Ant without having to set up an international brokerage account or paying excessive fees to invest in foreign stocks. Best of all, it’s a move you can make before the IPO.

And right now, I want to show you how Ant is going to make owners of this backdoor investment a lot of money.

An Outstanding Spinoff

Originally known as Ant Financial, Ant wasn’t originally considered a tech play per se. In 2004, the company became a popular Chinese-based e-commerce platform that allowed customers to safely purchase from online merchants. The fact that China’s massive payments market is worth more than $67 trillion is a big part of what’s made them such a successful fintech leader.

After becoming so successful, it split off from its parent company and became its own entity known as Ant Financial in 2014. It wasn’t until recently that the company began dropping “financial” from its English name to put focus more on its robust tech. And China isn’t its only destination. Ant Group has also sought to broaden its global reach by teaming up with payment companies in India, Southeast Asia, and Britain.

That’s what makes Ant Group such a great mobile and e-commerce play. It has past, present, and future on its side. That could be why analysts expect it to be worth $30 billion, making it possibly the largest IPO in history. And according to Renaissance Capital, IPOs are taking off in Fall 2020, “on track to beat last year with 170 IPOs raising $50 billion.”
