About Company

Mirae Asset was founded in 1997 in the wake of the Asian finacial crisis with a vision of and dedication to serving our clients, helping them build wealth for life with proven investment strategies.

Our endeavor to expand overseas began in 2003 with the establishment of our Hong Kong office, which has become the backbone of our Asian and emerging market investment capabilities and product offerings. These strategies were dedicated to diversifying the investment base for investors and were the starting point for our focus on the broader emerging markets. Since their inception we have consistently enhanced our coverage and presence in the emerging markets and are now one of the world’s largest emerging market investors.

Favorite Scripture

Psalm 139:1-6 (NASB)
God’s Omnipresence and Omniscience.

For the choir director. A Psalm of David. O Lord, You have searched me and known me. You know when I sit down and when I rise up; You understand my thought from afar. You scrutinize my path and my lying down, and are intimately acquainted with all my ways. Even before there is a word on my tongue, Behold, O Lord, You know it all. You have enclosed me behind and before, and laid Your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; It is too high, I cannot attain to it.
