BEIJING, Jan. 23, 2019 -- Hexindai Inc. (NASDAQ: HX) ("Hexindai" or the "Company"), a fast-growing consumer lending marketplace in China, announced today that it has connected its systems and begun sharing credit data with Baihang Zhengxin ("Baihang Credit").
Hexindai will make regular transfers of credit data to Baihang Credit which integrate and process the data collected to provide individual credit data.
