Since the ‘Measures for the Administration of Wealth Management Subsidiary Companies of Commercial Banks’ took effect on December 2nd, 2018, various commercial banks have successively set up financial subsidiaries, returning wealth management business from the original commercial banks back to subsidiaries, and conducting wealth management business there.
In accordance with the regulations of the ‘Measures for the Administration of Wealth Management Subsidiary Companies of Commercial Banks’ and the requirements of the China Banking and Insurance Commission (‘CBIRC’), the Bank of China (‘BOC’) as a state-owned commercial bank, has been preparing to set up financial subsidiaries. As one of the first batch of commercial banks to set up financial subsidiaries, BOC received approval from the China Banking and Insurance Regulatory Commission on December 26th, 2018 to set up a financial subsidiary of BOC (namely, BOC Wealth Management Co., Ltd., ‘Wealth Management’). On June 27th, 2019, BOC issued the ‘Announcement of the Bank of China on the Approval of the Opening of a wholly-owned subsidiary named BOC Wealth Management Co., Ltd.,’, which meant, according to the ‘Reply on the Opening of BOC Wealth Management Co., Ltd.by CBIRC ‘. ( No. 624), BOC Wealth Management was officially approved for opening. BOC Wealth Management has become the first branch of a domestic financial management subsidiary to open, after the opening of the China Construction Bank, Industrial and Commercial Bank of China, and the Bank of Communications.
The registered capital of BOC Wealth Management is RMB 10 billion. It is mainly engaged in the issuance of public offering of funds, private funds, financial advice and consulting.
