As a witness of and contributor to the reform and opening-up of Shanghai, Shanghai International Group was established amid reform, thrived through opening-up and grew stronger because of innovation. Starting as Shanghai Investment &Trust Co., Ltd. in 1981, SIG was founded in 2000 and began its journey from trust investment, financial investment and state-owned capital operation. While confronted with hardships and changes along the way, we have never ceased our endeavor, and yielded fruitful results. As the SOE soly owned by the state-owned capital of the Shanghai Municipal Government, SIG has been engaged in Shanghai’s modernization and globalization drive, providing sound financing services for key projects and promoted the development and reform of the financial industry, thus contributing to building Shanghai into an international financial center. It also supports the reform of SOAs and SOEs in Shanghai by leveraging its role as a state-owned capital operating platform.
The 19th CPC National Congress has pointed out the development path for the Party and the country, and charted a great new journey for us. At this historical moment of transition, SIG is committed to implementing the spirit of the 19th CPC National Congress and following the guidelines of Xi Jinping’s Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era. Driven by the “dual-wheel” strategy—state-owned capital operation and investment management, SIG aims to fulfill its role as a state-owned capital operating platform, enable the orderly investment and management of state-owned capital and contribute to major municipal strategies and the reform of SOAs and SOEs. SIG also performs its duty to manage the state-owned financial assets by giving full play to the guiding, leveraging and leading role through professional and market-based investment and management.
Now it is the right time to hoist the sails and embark on a new journey. Looking ahead, we are full of confidence. Adhering to its business philosophy, “Diligence, Prudence, Professionalism and Efficiency“，SIG strives to become a capital operation and investment management leader with international perspective and global competitiveness. By serving key national strategies, engaged in the development of the financial factor market and promoting the innovation and reform of the financial sector, SIG aims to increase the influence of Shanghai as an international financial center, and support the city’s financial development strategy. In addition, through better capital management, innovative capital operation and improved investment management, SIG will explore a new model for delegated operation of state-owned capital and effectively contribute to the reform of SOAs and SOEs in Shanghai.
Great accomplishments cannot be achieved without great vision and diligence. In the spirit of “Synergy, Innovation and Guidance”, we, in SIG, will be committed to innovation and forge ahead with great efforts in order to achieve high-quality development. We will make further progress and greater contribution to Shanghai in its drive to become the forerunner in the reform, opening-up and innovative development.
