RQFII License Awarded to Mirae Asset HK

HONG KONG, CHINA--(Marketwired - Nov 13, 2013) - Emerging markets specialist Mirae Asset Global Investments (Hong Kong) Limited ("Mirae Asset HK") is pleased to announce it has been awarded a license under the Renminbi Qualified Foreign Institutional Investor ("RQFII") scheme by the China Securities Regulatory Commission (the "CSRC") on 30 October 2013. This license allows Mirae Asset HK to carry out investments directly in China's Renminbi-denominated equity and fixed income markets.

RQFII is a policy initiative from the Chinese mainland authorities which allows qualified holders to offer investment products that invest in China's A-share equity and fixed income markets in the local Renminbi currency. RQFII products give greater opportunities for retail and institutional investors to capitalize on the China growth story.

Mr. Jung Ho RHEE, Chief Executive Officer of Mirae Asset HK, says, "We are delighted to be one of the first wholly-owned foreign asset managers to receive this opportunity from the CSRC to invest in China's onshore market. In addition to the QFII license approval, this marks another major milestone in our ability to offer more innovative products to all our valued clients and investors."

Mirae Asset HK is part of Mirae Asset Global Investments Group (the "Group"), one of the world's largest active investors in emerging market equities1 with over US$58.9 billion of assets under management (as of 30 September 2013). With offices spanning across 12 countries, the Group offers a broad range of investment solutions including mutual funds, ETFs and alternative investments.
