Cheung Kei is a Chinese word with the same pronunciation as the word "long-term" in Cantonese. Definitions of "Cheung Kei" in the dictionary include auspicious, blessings and everlasting. It is our hope that the Cheung Kei Group can be harmonious as it moves forward steadily and achieves sustainable development.
It has taken twenty eight years for us to become the large international investment group that we are today. At least 80% of businesses fail, so we feel fortunate to have grown "steadily". We are very aware that a company cannot achieve sustainable development without integrity. Therefore, we are determined to set a good example in this regard.
In order to turn Cheung Kei into a "Time-honored Brand", we rely on stringent risk prevention measures. These include warning and risk prevention measures against debt ratio. We also conduct regular tests similar to physical health examinations, then adjust areoperations accordingly to reduce risks. Despite Cheung Kei's current size, our existing debt is very low. Our assets are evenly distributed across Hong Kong, Shenzhen, London, Shanghai and other major cities in Europe and Southeast Asia. These assets include real estate, equity, investment funds, bonds and stocks. These assets are structured to allow strict control over investment risks.
For the past 29 years, Cheung Kei has grown alongside Hong Kong and Shenzhen. These are places that we have deep affection for. During this time, Cheung Kei has offered support to a variety of social welfare activities and charities, with donations totaling over 500 million HKD. Cheung Kei was granted the "Charitable Enterprise Award" at the First Pengcheng Charity Awards and won the gold medal at the Glorious Career Contribution Awards in Guangdong Province. I was also fortunate to have been awarded the Pengcheng Charity's "Outstanding Contribution Prize" that marked the 30th anniversary of the establishment of Shenzhen Special Administrative Region in 2011, the "Gold Medal for Philanthropy" at the third Pengcheng Charity Awards, the "Global Outstanding Chinese" award, and to have been selected as one of HongKong's twenty most influential and outstanding people at the twentieth anniversary of Hong Kong's return to the motherland in 2017， the grand prize at the first Outstanding Global Chinese Entrepreneur awards and the "Gold Medal for Philanthropy" at the fourth Pengcheng Charity Award in 2018.
Cheung Kei would not be where it is today without the many friends who have helped and supported us. These friends will never be forgotten, whether they hold a prominent position, continue in the same role or retire. And for those who have misunderstood us or even hurt us, we will continue to treat them with the greatest tolerance.
