In addition to giving up his position as chief executive, the company said Mr. Bao had also resigned from the company’s board of directors.
“Mr. Bao has confirmed that he has no disagreement with the board and there is no other matter relating to his resignation that needs to be brought to the attention of the shareholders of the company,” China Renaissance said.
Mr. Bao was a well-connected banker at Morgan Stanley and Credit Suisse before he founded China Renaissance in 2004, which invested in many of the country’s most successful tech companies and helped them go public in Hong Kong and New York.
Xie Yijing, who was serving as interim chief executive during Mr. Bao’s absence, was appointed chairman and designated as the permanent head of China Renaissance, according to the filing.
Before Mr. Bao’s disappearance, Cong Lin, another executive at China Renaissance, was detained in 2022 by authorities as part of an investigation into his dealings before he joined the company.
