Finance/Securities

For the past several decades, domestic banks have greatly contributed to the outstanding growth of the Korean economy. The banking industry, however, had to reinforce its business structure to become a high value added industry due to the financial crisis in 1997.
 
With regulations on foreign investment lifted, foreign investors have recently accounted for more than 30% of market share in the domestic stock market. We have shared extensive experience with securities investors both in the public and the individual sectors. As FTSE decided to upgrade the status of the Korean economy from emerging market to advanced market in 2009, the inflow of capital into the Korean market has increased and is expected to maintain momentum. In the meantime, the number of Korean companies that go public in the foreign exchange markets is increasing. The domestic banking industry focuses on improving customer service as part of an ambitious effort to create an investment bank with international competitive edge and thereby making Korea a financial hub of Northeast Asia. In the event that the domestic banking industry and capital market engage in a fierce competition, individuals and businesses require to take a more careful and strategic approach in making decisions.
 
As international financial institutions have released innovative financial products, regulatory environment has also become more complex than ever, and at the same time, investors have taken a greater risk than before. Domestic banks and financial institutions share a significant part of responsibility for financial products newly released, which has a quiet significant effect on the development, sale and marketing of financial products. In addition, financial institutions are subject to stricter disclosure and compliance obligations than ever while they should also consider a labor issue that is regarded as one factor that could affect doing business in the Korean market.
