Hong Kong – Speech by CS at Shun Hing Group’s 70th Anniversary Cocktail Reception (with photos/video)

Speech by CS at Shun Hing Group’s 70th Anniversary Cocktail Reception (with photos/video)


     Following is the speech by the Chief Secretary for Administration, Mr Chan Kwok-ki, at Shun Hing Group’s 70th Anniversary Cocktail Reception today (November 10):
Ambassador Kenichi Okada (Consul-General of Japan in Hong Kong), Mr Yuki Kusumi (President and Group Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Panasonic Holdings Corporation), Dr David Mong (Chairman and CEO of Shun Hing Group), ladies and gentlemen,
     Good evening. It gives me great pleasure to join you all today to celebrate Shun Hing Group’s 70th anniversary.
     Shun Hing is just like an old family friend of Hong Kong. Since 1953, your company has supplied Hong Kong with useful products to enhance citizens’ quality of life. Along the way, you have built a reputation as a reliable and caring company.
     No doubt, some of us have fond memories of your early rice cookers, a well-received household appliance back in the 60s and 70s. You also brought to the market many other household goods, from kitchen appliances to trendy audio-visual equipment. 
     Shun Hing has remained steadfast to Hong Kong and continued to diversify, supplying the business sector with a wide range of tech equipment and even office furniture. 
     Business aside, Shun Hing is committed to upholding corporate social responsibility, I am pleased to note. The Shun Hing Education and Charity Fund, established by the late Dr William Mong, has supported wide-ranging charities and projects that benefit Hong Kong and the Mainland. They cover education, sports, arts and culture, scientific research, medical services, and community services. 
     No less important are Shun Hing’s ongoing efforts to support the Government’s work to build a better Hong Kong. Let me just highlight two examples.
     One area is environmental protection. As a market leader in the electronics sector, Shun Hing has been supporting the implementation of the Government’s green initiatives such as the Producer Responsibility Scheme on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment, and the Rechargeable Battery Recycling Programme. 
     Also, Shun Hing has adopted a number of energy-saving measures and your own waste scheme to collect recyclables, and co-operated with suppliers to produce greener products, to help create a sustainable living environment.
     Another sector is sports, as mentioned by the Chairman (Dr David Mong, Chairman and CEO of Shun Hing Group) before. As a staunch supporter of Hong Kong athletes, Shun Hing has been sponsoring different events to promote a sporting culture in society. 
     Last year, the Panasonic Sports Scholarship Programme offered financial support of some 3.5 million Hong Kong dollars to ten athletes to prepare for the Hangzhou Asian Games and the Paris Olympics. No doubt, your support has contributed to the outstanding results of our athletes at the Asian Games, where they made us all proud with a record-breaking total of 53 medals.
     On behalf of the Government, I thank Shun Hing for your contributions to our society over the past 70 years. 
     As the Chief Executive stressed in his second Policy Address last month, the Government is determined to create a cohesive and caring community, with a vibrant economy where everyone can enjoy life. I look forward to Shun Hing joining with us to achieve more worthy aims – to build a better Hong Kong together.
     On that note, I wish Shun Hing Group a grand 70th anniversary, and every one of you the best of health and business in the years to come. Thank you.

ShareInvestor Group’s S$30M Merger with InvestingNote Adds Vitality to Singapore’s Retail Investing Scene

ShareInvestor Pte Ltd, Singapore’s largest independent platform for investor relations, market data tools and investor education, today announced its merger with Investing Note Pte. Ltd., a fast-growing and profitable community-driven platform serving young retail investors since 2014. ShareInvestor is an established brand with a 22-year track record of profitability. The deal terms for the merger values the combined Group at more than S$30 million.

Mr Christopher Lee SI CEO [L] and Mr Shanison Lin InvestingNote CEO [R]

InvestingNote is renowned for its large following of Gen Y (Millennials) and Gen Z investors, due in no small part to its CEO, Shanison Lin Xinshan, being a Millennial himself who shares the younger generation’s life aspirations, immersion in the digital world, and financial objectives.

Shanison’s belief that financial literacy should be fun and profitable has powered Investing Note to be the largest social network for young retail investors in both Singapore and Malaysia. Advertisers, sponsors, key opinion leaders and brokerages have been quick to recognise the value of tying up with Investing Note to engage its subscriber base of youthful and enthusiastic investors.

ShareInvestor and InvestingNote have had a long and mutually fruitful association starting with Shanison joining ShareInvestor as a software engineer after he graduated from [NUS] in 2009 with a Bachelor of Information Technology on a Ministry of Education (MOE) scholarship, until 2014 when he left to start InvestingNote. In 2015, ShareInvestor took an initial 15% stake in the startup and subsequently both ShareInvestor and two of its senior Management increased their total stake to 32%. Throughout the years, ShareInvestor’s senior Management has provided strategic guidance to InvestingNote, and the synergy that the two companies enjoy has spawned many successful project collaborations.

Mr Christopher Lee, CEO, ShareInvestor Group said: “The merger with InvestingNote is a natural progression for ShareInvestor given our long and synergistic relationship. It makes us even more attractive as a one-stop platform for advertisers, sponsors, key opinion leaders, brokerages and other financial intermediaries to forge win-win business partnerships with us. The merger also brings on board new talents and technologies and positions ShareInvestor as a future-ready financial intermediary for both traditional and digital assets.”

Mr Shanison Lin Xinshan, Founder of InvestingNote, said: “This is a pivotal moment for us as we mark the beginning of the next phase of growth. ShareInvestor has always been our shareholder and close partner since the early days of InvestingNote. I am super excited about starting this new journey together!”

Commenting on the merger, Mr Chan Kum Kong, Head of Research and FinLit, Singapore Exchange (SGX Group) said, “With the rise of a younger generation of tech-savvy investors, there is a need for high quality information and innovative solutions for online communities to hone their investment skills. The merger between ShareInvestor and InvestingNote will combine talents and capabilities of both platforms and broaden their reach to investors in the region. We look forward to the merged entity bringing added vibrancy to Singapore’s retail investing landscape.”

Mr Greg Baker, CEO of TD Ameritrade Singapore, said, “Knowledge is an investor’s best asset, and young investors know this. They place a high value on credible insights that can help them make smarter investment choices, in their pursuit of financial well-being. We have worked with ShareInvestor for over a decade and look forward to furthering our collaboration with the enlarged entity to make investor education readily accessible to all.”

Mr Gavin Chia, Managing Director, Moomoo Financial Singapore Pte. Ltd. said, “We have a symbiotic relationship with ShareInvestor and InvestingNote. In today’s increasingly complex financial markets, investor education is of utmost importance for informed decision making. The ShareInvestor Group’s services and its footprint in the Southeast Asia region will serve us well as we venture into these markets.”

Mr Christopher Lee concluded: “The Group’s enhanced talent and technology resources, together with its growing footprint in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand, give us confidence that we can be the leading regional financial intermediary, riding on the promising economic outlook for the ASEAN markets.”

The merged Group has set its sights for an initial public offering (IPO) on the Singapore Exchange or another reputable stock exchange within the next few years.
