Education

Another long-term area of importance to the Yuanta Group is the cultivation of talented finance professionals. Through industry-academia partnership projects like the College and Graduate Summer Research Program, we hope to help more students understand the practical side of finance. Students who show particular ability will also have the chance to join the Group upon graduation and put what they have learned to practical use.

The Group plans and holds lectures on financial research and wealth management, assisting the investing public in accumulating wealth management skills and financial literacy, as well as arranging internships and corporate visits for colleges and universities. The Yuanta Cultural and Educational Foundation has also launched the National Taiwan University-Renmin University Chinese Business Case Research Cooperation Framework Program, establishing a cross-strait platform for corporate case studies and exchange. At the same time, the Foundation has also continued to hold the Yuanta Cup EMBA Competition to help improve corporate brand recognition among local universities and students, and connect the Group's talent cultivation efforts with its Management Associate (MA) program, preparing the students for future job opportunities with the Group.

Cultivating Talent

Yuanta is committed to training financial professionals, creating a pool of talent through internships, scholarships, and academic competitions. Over the past 11 years, we have helped cultivate some 175 college students of finance. In 2017, Yuanta also helped 57 economically-disadvantaged students, who we hope will be able to give back to society in the future and create a "cycle of goodness" with their deeds.

Industry-Academia Exchange

Yuanta also sponsored Taiwan Corporate Governance Association’s 13th International Summit on Corporate Governance. The 2017 event was held at the NTU Conference Center and hosted scholars and experts from Taiwan and abroad, sharing their experiences and providing a valuable reference for Taiwan in the field of corporate governance. The summit was focused on the theme of “improving directors’ professional competence and creating value for companies,” aiming to show that corporate governance is about more than just regulation, but rather needs a top-to-bottom identification and acknowledgment throughout companies in order to shape corporate culture. Both domestic and international organizations also recognized Yuanta Financial Holdings and its subsidiaries for their performance in terms of both corporate governance and information transparency; in addition to ranking in the top 5% in the 3rd Corporate Governance Evaluations, in 2017 Wealth Magazine also awarded Yuanta Financial Holdings the Excellence in CSR by a Financial Holdings Company Award in the Wealth Magazine Finance Awards for the second consecutive year. As a result, the Group has become a model for many experts and scholars that participated in the summit.
