Trump Bans US Investment Into 'Chinese Military Companies', Including Hikvision

By Charles Rollet, Published Nov 13, 2020, 08:37am EST

The White House has banned all US entities from investing in Hikvision and 30 other firms it considers "Chinese military companies" starting on January 11, 2021.

The impact on Hikvision is limited since the company is listed in China and primarily owned by the PRC government and private Chinese investors. Hikvision stock fell only slightly off recent all-time highs.

Whether a Biden administration will reverse or soften these policies remains to be seen.
