Some of the most renowned syndicated loans that we were involved in recently are for power plant development, industrial park development, and acquisitions (power plant equities, cable TV and business M&As in the Greater China area). We will seek business opportunities from overseas business clients and private equity firms to provide structured financing and syndicated loans, and leverage our network in Hong Kong, Singapore and the Greater China market in collaboration with KGI Securities to provide integrated financing services covering the design of syndicated loan products, exclusive sales/bought deal and placement.
