We are delighted to have received the CMS licence from the MAS, which is a glorious milestone for the Group's global online brokerage operations. At the same time, we look forward to launching our application in the coming months to provide Singapore investors with secure, rich, stable and efficient global investment experiences, as well as breakthroughs in meeting unsatisfied demands, which is what we believe the market and users are seeking."
