FintechTech group Tencent is investing in insurance start-up Clark

Clark employs 270 people in Frankfurt.PR

Tencent announced its ambitious goal a year ago: the Chinese company behind the Messenger Wechat plans to invest a total of 10 billion dollars in Europe. A third of this should flow to Germany, and the tech company also wants to massively expand its own cloud service, according to the Handelsblatt at the end of 2019.
