  • China’s securities regulator reported that UP Fintech violated its domestic laws.
  • $TIGR plunged 28.5%, and lost $210 million of its market cap, damaging shareholders.
  • Investors suspect UP Fintech & its Leaders of hiding regulatory setbacks.
On December 30, 2022, China’s securities regulator (CSRC) reported that UP Fintech Holding Limited (NASDAQ: TIGR) violated its domestic laws by allowing customers on the mainland to make cross-border trades.

On this news, TIGR's ADRs plunged over 28% and the Company lost more than $200 million of its capitalization, seriously damaging investors.
  • As wrote the WSJ, The regulator also said it was requiring UP Fintech to stop taking on or soliciting new domestic clients and customers, who aren’t allowed to open accounts.
  • The CSRC said it intends to dispatch officers to conduct on-site inspections on TIGR.
  • The Company s didn’t immediately respond to the WSJ request for comment.
Now, TIGR ADRs holders have all reasons to suspect that the Company, its Leaders, and its Service Providers grossly violated their investor rights, which led to material damages to the value of the securities positions.

Specifically, the Company and its Leaders failed to disclose, among other things, that:
  1. UP Fintech’s business was, quite simply, illegal as it related to operations in China as a result of its failure to obtain the proper licenses;
  2. it did not fully disclose to investors that it was engaging in an unlawful activity and instead characterized the applicable Chinese laws as ambiguous;
  3. the foregoing subjected the Company to a heightened risk of regulatory enforcement; and
  4. as a result, Defendants’ statements about its business, operations, and prospects, were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.
When the true details entered the market, the lawsuit claims that investors suffered damages.
