Anbang has become emblematic of the unrestrained appetite for international trophies displayed by some of China’s largest conglomerates. Authorities took control of Anbang in February 2018 and subsequently sentenced former President Wu Xiaohui to 18 years in prison for fundraising fraud and embezzlement.

As part of the state-controlled Anbang restructuring, China established Dajia Insurance Group in 2019 to take over its main insurance business. The new entity acquired the interests of Anbang Life Insurance, Anbang Annuity Insurance and Anbang Asset Management, as well as certain assets of Anbang Property & Casualty Insurance.
