From its headquarters in Hong Kong, SHK & Co. has been a market leader in financial services for
over 50 years, providing sophisticated financial services to clients in Hong Kong and China. From our
beginnings offering brokerage and related services, the Group has grown steadily to become a financing and
investing firm with approximately HK$43 billion of assets. The Group forged a path into Mainland China more
than 30 years ago and has pioneered an array of financial service offerings.
Through constant innovation and excellence, and the Group’s deep understanding of market dynamics, the Company has evolved with the times. The Group has successfully weathered economic cycles, carefully seized promising opportunities and delivered consistent returns to its shareholders.
From a small team of seven staff, the company’s brokerage business grew exponentially through ground-breaking, market-leading initiatives that included establishing a footprint in Mainland China and launching an online brokerage platform as early as 2000.

2006 and 2007 marked a profound turning point for the Group, when it successfully entered the consumer finance industry by acquiring a majority stake in market leader UA Finance. The appointment of Mr. Lee Seng Huang as Group Executive Chairman transformed the brokerage business into Hong Kong’s largest independent wealth management platform, Sun Hung Kai Financial.

The sale in 2015 of 70% of the Sun Hung Kai Financial business to Everbright Securities, consistent with Sun Hung Kai Financial’s long-stated strategy to gain greater access to the fast-growing wealth management sector in Greater China, was an important step in the Group’s further transformation into a comprehensive finance and investment group. The Group focuses on a core of lending offerings as well as investing business, drawing on a winning combination of its heritage, extensive connections and financial strength. Entering 2020, the Group is expanding its Investment Management business into a Funds Management platform.
