Corporate Governance


We consider good corporate governance as the key to the stable operation and sustainable development of a commercial bank. We adhere to the principles of a modern commercial bank, optimize the corporate governance structure, improve the corporate governance mechanism, continuously enhance the standardization and effectiveness of corporate governance, and further improve the level of corporate governance.

By introducing 10 domestic and foreign strategic investors in 2015, our shareholding structure was further optimized, which laid a solid foundation for the continuous improvement of corporate governance. We amended our articles of association, as well as the rules of procedure for the shareholders' general meeting and the Board of Directors; formulated working rules for secretary of the Board of Directors, reporting procedures for the senior management, and working rules for independent directors; and thus established a comprehensive and sound corporate government system. We established the social responsibility committee in 2016 in order to improve the structure of committees under the Board of Directors. In 2018, we renamed the social responsibility committee to the social responsibility and consumer rights protection committee, with its responsibilities incorporating the consumer rights protection, so as to further support the decision-making of the Board of Directors in respect of consumer rights protection. In addition, we carried out performance appraisal on directors and members of the senior management, enhanced our information disclosure system, risk management, and internal control and compliance management, in order to ensure the smooth operation of our corporate governance system.

We were listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange in September 2016. Leveraging the previous efforts on improving corporate governance and according to the relevant provisions of the securities regulatory bodies, we further adjusted the composition of the Board of Directors, the Board of Supervisors and their special committees, and amended the corporate governance documents including the articles of association and the rules of procedure for the shareholders' general meeting, the Board of Directors and the Board of Supervisors. The corporate governance structure was further improved.
