China's top financial regulators plan to hold talks with fintech giant Ant Group Co. Ltd. on financial regulation, fair competition and protection of consumer interests, the central bank said Thursday.

The move comes less than two months after regulators suspended Ant Group's potentially record-breaking IPO in early November amid concerns over the company's highly leveraged online lending business and its potential threats to the stability of the financial system.
