About CDIB Capital Group
Taiwan's first name in finance
CDIB Capital Group pioneered venture capital and investment banking in Taiwan and today it remains the predominant leader in venture capital business in Taiwan with a market share of over 30%. Along with Taiwan's industrial development, CDIB Capital Group has built up a wealth of experience in high-tech investment.
Taiwan's investment finance powerhouse
CDIB Capital Group, formerly China Development Corporation and later China Development Industrial Bank, was the first private development-oriented financial institution in Taiwan. It was established in 1959 through the coordinating efforts of the Economic Stabilization Committee of the Executive Yuan, the World Bank and private funding. In 1999, it was restructured to become an industrial bank. In its more than 50 years of existence, CDIB Capital Group has concentrated on the principal investment and corporate banking businesses. It has invested in and provided services to domestic and overseas clients in over 100 industries, and it continues to play a critical role in Taiwan's venture capital market.
An enviable track record
CDIB Capital Group has long worked in close partnership with the Taiwanese government to support the nation's economic growth. It has not only made a significant contribution to the nation's economic and industrial development, but has also played the role as a pioneer among local investment banks. The evolution of Taiwan's industrial structure is neatly encapsulated in the changes of CDIB Capital Group's investment and credit portfolio. CDIB Capital Group invested in traditional textiles and petrochemicals industries in the 60s and 70s; it shifted its focus in the 80s and 90s to foster high-tech industries, such as the electronics and information technology industry, and the semiconductor industry. From 2000, CDIB Capital Group has been actively involved in industries such as optoelectronics, alternative energy, medical and healthcare as well as consumer goods. The investment history of CDIB Capital Group reflects well the history of Taiwanese industrial and economic development.
A new era has begun
CDIB Capital Group has become a wholly owned subsidiary of China Development Financial Holding Corporation (CDF) through a 1:1 share swap in 2001. This transformation allows CDIB Capital Group to expand additional business opportunities through cooperation and integration with other members of the CDF. On May 1, 2015, CDIB Capital Group's corporate banking and financial market operations were transferred to KGI Bank. Upon completion of this transfer, CDIB Capital Group aims to fully focus on its venture capital and private equity fund businesses in Taiwan, mainland China, and the Asia-Pacific region, with a view to increasing fee revenue. CDIB Capital Group also proactively engages with the group's restructuring plan to gradually dispose of investment positions and enlarge the size of managed equity funds, with the aim of becoming a leading private equity fund manager in the Asia-Pacific region. With its business transformation and associated change of name being approved by the Financial Supervisory Commission, R.O.C., China Development Industrial Bank has been officially renamed CDIB Capital Group upon the business transformation on March 15, 2017 to focus on the core business activities in fundraising and venture capital investment. CDF has tailored its business operation to provide a full range of integrated financial services through three major subsidiaries: KGI Bank, KGI Securities and CDIB Capital Group.
Our goal is to become a reliable financial partner for our clients and to move towards the vision of becoming 'the leading and most uniquely positioned financial group in the Asia-Pacific region.'
