Over the past twenty years, CICC has been very successful as we seized the opportunities presented by the re-organization and IPOs of SOEs as well as the development of China’s capital markets.
As China’s economy enters a “new normal” and the Chinese government proceeds with further reforms, CICC faces many new opportunities and challenges that emerge from rapidly growing capital markets, innovation-driven transformation in the securities industry, Chinese companies’ exploration of global market, and the robust growth of internet finance. We aim to make CICC a time-honored brand. Our commitment, founded in China’s economic reform, is to pioneer innovations and create something new. We will capture the new opportunities this era presents and continue to bear the responsibilities of our great historic mission.
Over the past two decades, by combining the international best practices with China’s reality, CICC spearheaded a number of organizational and institutional innovations alongside with the evolution of the China’s capital markets, and established itself as a leading investment bank in China. In future, built upon its proven track record and an enlarged capital base, CICC will stick to its premier service offering to clients to embrace the deepened economic reform and upgraded financial liberalization in China and start a second undertaking.
