Wish, a US-based e-commerce platform backed by investors including e-commerce firm JD.com and conglomerate Legend Holdings, raised an undisclosed amount on Monday in a series F round led by Everbright-IDG Industrial Fund that included Temasek, DST Global, Third Point Ventures and Founders Fund. The company had raised more than $575m as of a 2015 series D round that valued it at $3.5bn, and a report in November 2016 stated it was about to raise up to $500m in additional cash.
