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.

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.
