On the whole, the decisive implementation of the takeover played a timely "hemostatic" role, stopped financial violations, and curbed the spread of risks. Disposing of contractor bank risks by way of acquisition and undertaking not only protects the legitimate rights and interests of customers to the maximum extent, but also breaks the rigid payment in accordance with the law, rectifies the radical behavior of some institutions, and then strengthens market discipline. It promotes the reasonable credit stratification of the financial market.
