Hong Kong government plans for curbing access to its corporate registry are moving forward. With governments around the world pushing transparency on low-tax jurisdictions, this looks shady. https://t.co/VZK5SsuMAC @JennHughes13 https://t.co/TB7rgnLLM9

From @Breakingviews: Shimano is benefiting from a surge in bicycle purchases driven by pandemic lockdowns, but its refusal to significantly boost capacity is starving retailers and aggravating a global bicycle shortage, says @JennHughes13 https://t.co/qOiSKVIT56 https://t.co/m7CpZdb6wb

Lufax quietly raised $2 bln the week before its rival Ant’s $35 bln IPO imploded last year. On Monday it reported first quarter earnings up 19% and doubled some forecasts. Share performance remains unfairly darkened by Ant’s regulatory woes. @JennHughes13 https://t.co/zqGZQuu8yJ https://t.co/VHtAcWRaso
