Citic is China's largest state-run conglomerate. It is engaged in a wide variety of businesses, from property development to heavy industry to resources, though its primary focus is the financial sector, including banking and securities. It is affiliated with Japanese trading house Itochu and Thai conglomerate Charoen Pokphand Group.
Subsidiaries Citic Securities, China's largest securities company, and China Citic Bank, a second-tier bank, generate steady revenues.
One group business that has been struggling is Citic's iron ore mine development project in Western Australia.
In 2014, Citic transferred its assets, including shares in group companies, from its unlisted intermediary holding company to its Hong Kong-based listed company as part of reforms of state-run companies. State-run investment funds, such as Qatar Holding and Singapore's Temasek Holdings, invested in the Hong Kong company.
Citic got its start as China International Trust and Investment Corp., which was established in 1979 with the backing of Deng Xiaoping.
Citic founder Rong Yiren was dubbed the "Red Capitalist" and later served as vice president of China. Citic Chairman Chang Zhenming is known to have close ties with Chinese President Xi Jinping.
