Taiwan Stock Exchange and Fubon Securities heading for Japan to take in new market vitality

The Taiwan Stock Exchange (TWSE) and Fubon Securities collaborated again in organizing a briefing on investing in Taiwan held on May 17. Led by Senior Executive Vice President (SEVP) Chang-Ching Lin, the team of delegates along with 12 invited outstanding companies took the trip to Tokyo, which was the second time the TWSE reached out to Japanese investors after attending “IR Festa” in Tokyo organized by the Japan Exchange Group (JPX) in February.


The 12 Taiwan-listed companies who attended the investment briefing focused on the Apple supply chain and next-generation technology, such as IoT, servers, 5G, optical fiber and more. At the briefing, the company representatives and over 30 Japanese institutional investors engaged in group and one-on-one talks, 101 sessions in all. The Taiwan-listed companies introduced Taiwan’s industrial outlook and the competitiveness of individual companies, highlighting the benefits of foreign investment in Taiwan.


During the briefing, the TWSE invited a number of asset management, securities, insurance companies, and other large institutional investors to participate in luncheon events. During the opening address, SEVP Chang-Ching Lin explained Taiwan’s market strength and depth from different aspects, including Taiwan’s potential for industrial growth, steady dividend yield, excellent corporate governance, and other value. In addition, the TWSE also introduced to Japanese investors Taiwan’s corporate governance development. In addition to the lunch speeches, the TWSE also visited local heavyweight institutional investors to gain an in depth profound understanding of investors’ needs, with the goal of boosting investment in Taiwan shares. 


In the face of increasingly stringent EU regulations and the MSCI inclusion of China A shares, the TWSE will continue to go abroad in an endeavor to attract overseas investments and introduce top-notch companies to institutional investors. In addition to visiting Japan to meet investors for the second time, arrangements will continue to be made for companies to visit financial centers in Asia, as well as southbound markets with potential, thereby promoting the Taiwan market in a diversified range of aspects, attracting more investment capital into the Taiwan stock market, and enhancing the economic growth momentum.
