The Company is China’s largest conglomerate with total assets over US$900 billion and a constituent of the Hang Seng Index. Among its diverse global businesses, the Company focuses primarily on financial services, resources and energy, manufacturing, engineering contracting and real estate. When we analyse a business, we look at its market position, competitiveness and future prospects.
The Company enjoys leading market positions in sectors well matched to China’s economy. CITIC’s rich history, diverse platform and strong corporate culture across all businesses ensure that the Company is unrivalled in capturing opportunities arising in China.
Going forward, the Group will continue to take a strategic approach in developing our businesses, riding on our professional management team, strong capital base, diverse business interests and synergies with our assets. Our expectation is that our businesses will generate a return on capital invested above the cost of our capital and generate cash flow to the benefit of the Company and its shareholders. By pursuing this strategy, the Company expects to generate and preserve value for all its shareholders.
