(Reuters) - China's securities regulator has approved financial tech firm Ant Group's Hong Kong leg of a planned dual-listing worth about $35 billion, IFR reported on Monday citing unnamed people familiar with the matter.

Ant, backed by e-commerce giant Alibaba Group <9988.HK>, <BABA.N> plans to seek listing approval from Hong Kong's stock exchange on Monday and the China Securities Regulatory Commission will approve Ant's Shanghai leg of the listing plan, IFR reported.
