Company Background

Fubon is a major Taiwanese financial services company which offers banking, insurance and brokerage products. It started out as a property insurance company in 1961 under the Cathay group, the financial business leviathan controlled by brothers Tsai Wan-lin and Tsai Wan-chun.

Later Tsai Wan-tsai, younger brother to Wan-lin and Wan-chun took control of the property insurance company in 1979 and gradually developed it into his own empire, known today as Fubon. The company was listed as a financial holding company in 2001.

Like Cathay Financial Holding, Fubon makes most of its profits on life insurance. In recent years it has been expanding in the region, particularly in China. Fubon also controls Taiwan Mobile, a major Taiwanese wireless carrier.

Fubon is currently managed by Chairman Daniel Tsai and Vice Chairman Richard Tsai, sons to Wan-tsai and cousins to Cathay Financial Holding Chairman Tsai Hong-tu. Daniel has a master's degree in law from Georgetown University, and Richard has a Master of Business Administration from New York University.

The Tsais are widely recognized as one of the richest families in Taiwan.
