Slowdown in China Tech Investments

Chinese tech unicorns are having a harder time raising money, The Wall Street Journal reports, amid signs investors are growing wary of overhyped valuations.

Notably, there are some signs of anxiety over ride hailing giant Didi Chuxing. A fund managed by Davis Advisors LP this summer marked the value of its Didi stake 7% lower than what it valued the stake last year, according to the report.
