Company Background

Hana Financial Group is a leading South Korean financial group providing integrated services through its subsidiaries, including KEB Hana Bank, Hana Daetoo Securities, KEB Hana Card, and Hana Life. Hana Financial, like its rival Shinhan Financial Group, is one of the largest banking groups in the country by assets. Leveraging its network worldwide, it aims to enhance its overseas services, especially in China.

Originally founded in 1971 as Korea Investment & Finance, a money market brokerage, the company converted into commercial bank in 1991 and was renamed as Hana Bank.

It expanded its profile, through mergers with Boram Bank and Seoul Bank, and acquisitions of a range of services such as brokerage and insurance. The group completed its transformation into an integrated financial organization in 2005.

The group in 2012 bought Korea Exchange Bank, which originally specialized in currency transaction services and had a strong overseas network. As of April 2015, Hana Financial Group had the largest overseas network among South Korean banking service companies, with 136 outlets in 24 countries, including China, Japan and the U.S.

In September 2015, Hana Bank and KEB merge to form KEB Hana Bank. Prior to the reformation, both banks have completed incorporation of overseas subsidiaries, such as in China and Indonesia, by the end of 2014.

The Chinese subsidiary of the new bank had total assets worth 45 billion yuan at the end of 2014. Its goal is to be ranked by 2025 in the top five foreign financial firms in China by assets.
