Principles and Policies

CDF follows responsible investment policies across the Group. Our major subsidiaries, including China Life Insurance, CDIB Capital Group, KGI Bank, KGI Securities, and KGI Securities Investment Trust are signatories to the "Stewardship Principles" of the Taiwan Stock Exchange Corporation and comply with its six main principles. In response to UN’s Principles for Responsible Investment (UN PRI), we pursue its ESG protocols and Stewardship Principles to motivate and encourage enterprises to fulfill their fair obligations of CSR. Put simply, an investment portfolio built on the PRI is not only potentially beneficial, but also offers a triple-win opportunity for the good of the environment, society, and corporate governance.
Our responsible investment strategy is to minimize the negative impact on the environment and the society, while providing quality products and services in line with the global trend of sustainability and maximize benefits from our investments. To comply with the UN PRI, Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and Equator Principles (EPs), CDF has designed a series of investment and credit evaluation processes and guidelines. China Life Insurance and CDIB Capital Group have formulated the “Policy for Responsible Investment,” incorporating ESG standards into evaluation processes and management.
