GF Securities (Canada) Co. Ltd., wholly owned by GF Securities, is the first Chinese securities company to establish a subsidiary in Canada. Establishing our North American headquarters in Vancouver marks another key step in the process of our globalization. China and Canada are highly complementary in terms of their economies and international trade. The prospects for Chinese companies investing in Canada and Canadian companies expanding into Chinese markets are both promising, with an increasing demand for investment banking services on both sides.
In recent years, a large number of Chinese immigrants have invested, studied and settled in Canada. We are well positioned to provide much needed wealth management services to these thriving communities, while striving to increase our local market influence. Our long term strategy is to serve as an investment bridge, connecting Chinese individuals and enterprises to the Canadian markets, providing capital market solutions throughout China, Hong Kong, and Canada.
