Participants worldwide gave positive feedback to the first 2021 investment event, co-hosted by the TWSE and Masterlink Securities

The “GREAT RESET-New Industry Landscape after COVID 19” Taiwan investment event drew to a successful close on January 20. It is the very first time to combine physical and online meetings in one event, successfully attracting numerous domestic and Asian institutional investors to have 25 one-on-one meetings and one lunch keynote speech with 19 listed companies.


During the event, the TWSE demonstrated the exceptional performance of the Taiwan capital market in 2020 and introduced the CG development blueprint hereafter. Rebecca Chen, Senior Executive Vice President of the TWSE, mentioned that the sturdy control of the pandemic facilitated our stock market to have a spectacular performance. Also, the TWSE started continuous trading and intraday odd lot trading as previously planned. Furthermore, Taiwan was ranked 4th in the “CG Watch 2020”, which is the highest standing ever achieved since 2003, and has accounted for the largest weighting in both the “Dow Jones Sustainability Emerging Markets Index” and “FTSE4Good Emerging Indexes”.


A keynote speech delivered by the TWSE focuses on introducing the latest Taiwan CG developments to institutional investors, covering topics of introducing the “Corporate Governance 3.0-Sustainable Development Roadmap” published on August 25, 2020, methods in fortifying the market transparency and credibility, in addition to ESG promotion among listed companies.


In confronting the challenges brought by COVID-19, the TWSE values continuous communication with global institutional investors.
