Investment banks play a pivotal role in the financial system, including meeting financing needs, optimising resource allocation, boostingenterprise strengths, and increasing industry concentration and economy of scale. Over the past 35 years since its inception, BOCI has made due contributions to maintain the stability and prosperity of capital markets in the Mainland and Hong Kong, while upholding BOC’s fine traditions and adopting best international practices. For years, BOCI has gained a leadership position in the Hong Kong market in terms of share underwriting, bond underwriting, share spot trading and asset management. The Company has also ranked top in the Mainland’s share underwriting and bond issuance market.
As BOC's flagship Investment Banking Platform, BOCI is an integral component of BOC’s comprehensive service platform. In line with BOC’s values and vision of “Good Corporate Citizen, Best Bank”, BOCI has set “Building a National Brand and Becoming China’s Best Investment Bank” as its strategic goal, aiming to build itself into a universal investment bank deeply rooted in China that focuses on the development in the Asia-Pacific region and has extensive sales networks, distribution channels and service capabilities covering major global financial centres.
To implement the BOC Group’s strategic development planning that puts emphasis on enhancing sales and customer services worldwide, optimising allocation of overall sales resources and diversifying market risks to practice the Lean Management philosophy, BOCI has set up the Global Coverage Centre, a customer-centric, cross-business sales platform dedicated to providing customers with a comprehensive range of premium financial services and products. It is a strategic move that aims to synergise the Company’s marketing, sales and customer services efficiently and systematically.
Looking ahead, Capital markets of HongKong and the Mainland of China offer a bright prospect with abundant opportunities. Under the leadership of BOC headquarters and the board of directors of the Company, BOCI will continue to create maximum value for customers, shareholders, employees and communities while enhancing corporate governance and improving core competencies in investment banking, which in turn opens up a new prospect for BOCI’s future development.
