History

A History of Growth

Mirae Asset was founded in 1997 in the wake of the Asian currency crisis with a vision of and dedication to serving our clients, helping them build wealth for life. Our endeavor to expand overseas began in 2003 with the establishment of our Hong Kong office, which has become the backbone of our Asian and Emerging Market investment capabilities. Since the inception of that office, we have consistently enhanced our coverage and presence in the emerging markets and are now one of the world's largest emerging market investors.

We are committed to securing future levers of growth and providing value to our clients, as evidenced in our milestones.
