This Hong Kong brokerage was originally founded in the early 1990s by Taiwan’s Core Pacific Group, now best known internationally for being behind one of the world’s oddest looking shopping malls. It subsequently acquired the Hong Kong operations of Yamaichi Securities – formerly one of the Japanese ‘big four’ brokers – when the latter went bankrupt in 1997, merged with the Hong Kong arm of Taiwan’s Yuanta Securities in 1999 and then got caught up in a lengthy court battle when Core Pacific and Yuanta fell out.
Today, the firm offers trading in most Asian markets and a few others outside the region. However, fees are high and it looks like most investors can get a better deal elsewhere. It’s included in the directory to help with comparisons, but there is no customer feedback available so far.
