On June 1, the Bank of China — the mainland’s second-biggest bank — will launch its $9 billion-plus initial public offering in Hong Kong. This follows a similarly sized global offering by China Construction Bank last fall. And China’s top bank, the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China (ICBC), is readying what analysts think will be a monster $12 billion later this year.
