Compliance with All Laws and Regulations

It is essential for all officers and employees in the securities companies to comply with the compliance with all laws and regulations. However, due to the existence of broad and various regulations in the securities industry, it is likely for us to have a brush with the laws and regulations without consciousness. In order for our officers and employees not to breach the compliance with all laws and regulations, we periodically conduct the training programs for them aiming to enhance their understanding for the compliance. We also display our internal regulations on our intranet so that our officers and employees can easily browse them.
The corporate management department checks the compliance system every day, and the audit department conducts internal audits based on the audit plan. If there are any violation of the laws and regulations, the audit department conducts the quick and appropriate procedures, and improves the problems.
Moreover, we place the Compliance Committee under the Board of Directors, and this committee examines our overall compliance system with expertise.
