Ping An Trust, a subsidiary of Ping An Insurance group, has agreed to sell its 49 per cent stake in a residential site in Beijing to China Jinmao Holdings group for 985.5 million yuan (HK$1.18 billion).

China Jinmao, the real estate arm of Sinochem group, will own 100 per cent of the site after the completion of the transaction, China Jinmao said in a filing to the Hong Kong stock exchange on Monday.
