- Bring functions such as clearing, settlements and trade execution back in house

Their mission is to lead the renovation of the brokerage industry, to introduce customers to extraordinary low commission and innovative technology and to take full advantage of significant backing from investors such as Alibaba's Ant Financial Services Group.
