“Regarding the early redemption of Evergrande wealth investment products by some managers, the group company views the matter seriously,” the company said.

Evergrande said it had requested that all the funds redeemed by the six managers in advance be returned within a certain time frame.

Severe penalties would also be imposed, it said.

Evergrande, with over $300 billion in liabilities, is in the throes of a liquidity crisis that has left it racing to raise funds to pay its many lenders and suppliers.

The company has epitomised China’s freewheeling era of borrowing and building. Uncertainty about its ability to meet funding obligations – equal to 2% of China’s gross domestic product – has sent jitters through markets.

The group has been hit by recent ratings downgrades, with both S&P Global Ratings and Fitch Ratings warning of the risk of default.
