ZRT: Drive for Transformation Increasingly Entrenched for 30-Year-Old Company

  While the wealth managed by the trust industry has grown rapidly from less than one trillion yuan in 2007 to an almost inconceivable 23 trillion today, trust businesses have emerged as one of the main investment options and injected new life into the real economy.

  Among those domestic trust companies that have “come of age” during the period, ZRT has earned its reputation as a professional, market-driven, and highly-efficient trust company. It has evolved from its predecessor founded in 1986 and, with almost a decade of rapid development under its belt, has accomplished the metamorphosis from a local finance company to a comprehensive financial service provider that offers prudent and mature products across the country. 
  30 years after its establishment, ZRT is once again at a crossroads of historic importance: the Communist Party and the Chinese nation have mapped out the financial sector’s future, with reform and restructuring being deepened in trust business, and the company must carry forward its cause into a new era. What ZRT does to transform itself not only has a direct bearing on its future, but will surely set an example for the whole of the industry to follow.
  In 2014, ZRT was one of the first to set itself a goal for transformation over the next three to five years, announcing it would “shift from a pure funds provider to a comprehensive financial service provider that integrates private placement banking, asset management and wealth management”, and its ongoing efforts over the past three years have been centered on these three pillars. Regarding private placement financing, the company has strived to take good care of stock, control incremental funds and tighten post-loan management to lay a solid foundation for full-scale transformation. When it comes to asset management, it has sought to improve its capabilities in investment management to maximize values for customers, and in wealth management, it has built direct-selling channels to raise service levels and facilitate the shift from being business to customer-oriented.
  “On the threshold of a new era, we should answer the call of the Party and the country regarding financial policies, conduct lawful and compliant business and secure stable growth to contribute to the real economy. It is equally important for us to rely on innovation and collaboration to grow with our investors, partners, employees and the trust industry as a whole. I do hope that when looking back after another 30 years, we can honestly say that these past 30 years have been even more meaningful and fruitful,” says Liu Yang.
