Our Singapore subsidiary manages equity and alternative investments in the pan- Asian market. We acquired a New York- based subsidiary to handle our assets in the US and other countries. We have also established a Chinese subsidiary as a wholly foreign-owned enterprise (WFOE) so we could better execute our global strategy and expand our business footprint overseas.
