Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

with great pleasure, we are glad to share with you the information regarding the registration of our Shanghai operational branch with its new legal form: Financial Technologies SA (Shanghai) Holdings.

After having been the first subject in Switzerland to achieve the ISO 9001:2015 certification for M&A activities and Extraordinary Corporate Transactions, and after having operated in China for more than 4 years through its own Representative Office, Financial Technologies is the first Swiss independent M&A Group that obtained the authorization from the Chinese government to operate in China as “Wholly Foreign Owned Enterprise” (WOFE).

The authorization to act from China with an independent company statute represents an important institutional acknowledgement that strengthens the operating structure of Financial Technologies Group to offer highly specialized services to its Clients.
