But, in his drive for global expansion, he racked up serious debt — and attracted the attention of government officials.</p> <h4 style="font-size: 18px;font-weight: bold;margin-bottom: 8px;margin-top: 16px"><strong>From insurance company to global powerhouse</strong></h4> <p style="font-family: arial, sans-serif;font-size: 15px;line-height: 120%;margin: 0;padding-bottom: 12px">Anbang began its life in <a href="https://www.economist.com/news/business-and-finance/21737343-chinas-government-takes-control-its-would-be-financial-colossus-rapid-rise?fsrc=rss" target="_blank" style="color: #ed4d1f;text-decoration: none">2004</a> as a tiny car-insurance company. For many years, it just sold insurance policies. But its founder, Wu, developed greater ambitions.</p> <p style="font-family: arial, sans-serif;font-size: 15px;line-height: 120%;margin: 0;padding-bottom: 12px">The company began peddling “<a href="https://www.nytimes.com/2018/02/23/business/what-is-anbang-a-primer-on-chinas-fallen-deal-maker.html" target="_blank" style="color: #ed4d1f;text-decoration: none">wealth management products</a>” (or short-term investments with fixed-rate returns), a largely unregulated way for Chinese companies to raise capital, which, according to the <em>NYT</em>, led Anbang’s assets to multiply 2,876-fold in a 6-year period.</p> <p style="font-family: arial, sans-serif;font-size: 15px;line-height: 120%;margin: 0;padding-bottom: 12px">With that massive momentum, Anbang snatched up properties across the globe — including dropping $2B on New York’s Waldorf Astoria hotel, and $6.5B on a multi-city hotel deal with Blackstone.</p> <h4 style="font-size: 18px;font-weight: bold;margin-bottom: 8px;margin-top: 16px"><strong>Where’d things go wrong?</strong></h4> <p style="font-family: arial, sans-serif;font-size: 15px;line-height: 120%;margin: 0;padding-bottom: 12px">The Chinese government had <a href="https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-02-23/china-regulators-to-take-control-of-anbang-insurance-for-1-year-jdz9l5fp" target="_blank" style="color: #ed4d1f;text-decoration: none">2 major problems </a>with the way Anbang was going about its business.</p> <p style="font-family: arial, sans-serif;font-size: 15px;line-height: 120%;margin: 0;padding-bottom: 12px">First, they took issue with the company’s wealth management products, which they saw as “high-yielding, short-term investment products in the guise of insurance” that posed a huge risk to mom and pop investors.</p> <p style="font-family: arial, sans-serif;font-size: 15px;line-height: 120%;margin: 0;padding-bottom: 12px">Second, they didn’t like Anbang’s massive expenditures overseas. Last year, China’s president, Xi Jinping, called companies like Anbang “<a href="https://www.cnbc.com/2017/02/23/financial-crocodiles-and-poisonous-demons-chinese-regulators-war-of-words.html"
