After the boom and bust of an earlier generation of financial technology startups, many centered on peer-to-peer (P2P) lending, a new generation of better regulated fintechs is taking their place.

Many of those could be coming to market this year, led by what’s expected to become a world record-setting IPO by Ant Group Co. Ltd.

Buzz coming from the company’s blockbuster dual listing in Hong Kong and on the Chinese mainland, which could raise up to $30 billion, could encourage some smaller fintech peers to expedite their public debuts as well.

But they are likely to face regulatory headwinds amid signs of tightening oversight of China’s top tech companies, especially Alibaba and Tencent, which wield immense clout in the world’s largest internet market.
