China Development Financial Holding Corporation (hereinafter referred to as “CDF”) announced today the opening of its new headquarters at No. 135, Dunhua North Road, Taipei City. This coincides with the 20th anniversary of the holding company. CDF’s move to the new wing-shaped building symbolizes its readiness to soar towards delivering its vision of becoming a leading financial company in Asia by leveraging innovative solutions and its entrepreneurial spirit.
CDF is bidding farewell to its building which has been its headquarters for 37 and an important landmark on Nanjing East Road. Enhancing its image of an industrial bank, CDF transformed from a company which provided direct investment, into a comprehensive financial holding company offering securities, banking and life insurance to its customers. The move to the new building will also see all employees of CDF and its subsidiaries, including CDIB Capital, KGI Bank and China Life, work together in the same location fostering one of CDF corporate values, Collaboration.
In order not to affect business continuity, only the address and the telephone numbers of bank employees will change, everything else will remain unchanged.
The new headquarters building was designed with ideas of environmental friendliness and sustainable development in mind. Many ingenuities were incorporated into aspects such as energy conservation, air conditioning, and greenification, to not only provide a suitable and elegant work environment, but also to fulfill the promise made by China Development Financial of zero carbon emissions for all assets by 2045.
The moving process was planned and initiated during the most severe time of the COVID-19 pandemic. Fortunately, the headquarters building was completed on time and the move was finished as the pandemic started to subside.
