Ant Group Co. has started making it clear to customers if they are borrowing from outside lenders or from the company itself, as Jack Ma's financial-technology giant continues to fall in line with Chinese regulations. Ant, which is 33% owned by Alibaba Group Holding Ltd., has been forced to revamp its businesses according to directions laid out by regulators including the People's Bank of China. As part of the overhaul, Ant set up a new consumer-finance company with several other companies in June, and started to fold the credit business in the new entity. Alibaba's ADRs closed up 2% at $136.52.
