Financial services play a tremendously important supporting role in society’s development and progress. As technology advances, laws evolve, and society develops; the public and clients, meanwhile, require a diverse range of financial services at different times and stages. The Group is acutely aware of the fact that a robust, stable society is the foundation upon which well-being and economic development are built, as well as being prerequisites for business prosperity. On top of this, the level of a society’s development also influences demand for financial services as well as the industry’s room for development. Since the 1990s, the United Nations’ Human Development Index (HDI) has served as a valuable tool for observing a country through the three dimensions of its population’s health, education, and economic environment. Introduced in 2015, the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) also cover health, education, tolerance, and sustainable economic development and provide encouragement to increase global sustainable development.
In light of the above, the Group’s long-term vision continues to be “Service for the Common Good,” and we consider the common good to be among our responsibilities. Through the core of our financial services, through all we contribute and pay, we aim to elevate the culture, health, education, and lifestyle of the people, creating a better social environment in which we can all share.
