China's biggest property insurer is to begin trading on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange on Friday.
The People's Insurance Company of China (PICC) raised more than $3bn (£1.9bn) in its initial public offering - Hong Kong's biggest in two years.
A strong debut may provide a much needed lift to the Chinese markets.
