Societal development and financial services comprise two parts of a mutually reliant, mutually beneficial system. Financial services provide vital support to the economy and society, while at the same time depending on that society’s stable development. In a society lacking stability, businesses also face increased challenges. For that reason, Yuanta’s strength in Taiwan has not only drawn from its contributions to the financial industry, but has also benefitted from the attention it has given to bettering the quality of cultural, health, educational and lifestyle standards in Taiwanese society. From a thorough understanding of contemporary Taiwanese society, Yuanta can better understand its own role and what it can contribute, ensuring that our efforts to give back are effective in supporting the development of Taiwan’s society as a whole.
The Yuanta Foundation is built on a large community/small community concept. The large community constitutes Taiwanese society as a whole, in which we see issues like wealth inequality, the urban-rural gap, and drug abuse driving societal instability. The small community constitutes our everyday surroundings, which are also full of individuals requiring assistance and care. Through the Yuanta Foundation’s four major areas of activity, the Dream Big Plan, Public Welfare, Education, and A Safer Society, we contribute to both the large community and small community, in the course of which we indirectly support the development of Taiwanese society, and promote a vision of shared prosperity for the Group and society at-large.
