Ant Financial Services Group Womens Jerry Rice Jersey , Alibaba Group Holding's finance affiliate, plans to adopt a partnership structure in an attempt to enable top management to maintain control of its board after an IPO, Bloomberg reported on Tuesday.

Unnamed sources familiar with the matter were quoted by the report as saying that Ant Financial's partners will nominate a majority of directors similar to how its parent company Alibaba did before it got listed on the New York bourse in 2014.

The report also revealed that the transaction volumes of China's online payments reached over 8 trillion yuan ($1.28 trillion) in 2014, up 50.3 percent year-on-year.
