– Who We Are
Richlink Capital is an established financial services company with four key business lines – asset management, wealth management or family office, investment advisory services and our leading business school program.
+ Our Heritage
Richlink Capital has a long and stellar history founded by Professor Jason Zheng in 2004 initially with the aim of providing capital market solutions to his growing list of business school students. Professor Zheng from his time studying in the United Kingdom and lecturing at the prestigious Peking, Tsinghua and Fudan Universities in China identified a niche whereby many of his friends and students were seeking investment solutions and advice that was not readily available. Quality investment and capital markets solutions were lacking, the range of available options were limited and did not provide compelling outcomes for clients.
Professor Zheng realised there was a considerable void in the community for compelling investment and capital market solutions. Armed with these findings, Richlink Capital was created with the aim purely to fill the gap in the market.
Many students of Professor Zheng’s have progressed on to become leading entrepreneurs and executives of many very successful companies across the region. Increasingly with the deep teachings and sophistication of clients there was a growing demand for greater investment management and financial services. To meet client expectations Richlink Capital progressively expanded its range of capabilities. Even today we continue to search for innovation to ensure we remain leaders in financial services with an unwavering objective to act in the best interest of our clients.
Under the stewardship of the founder Professor Zheng the Richlink Capital Group is a well-known and highly respected financial services firm with clients including High Net Worth individuals, family offices, Corporates and Institutions.
The company is headquartered in Beijing with offices in Shanghai, Shenzhen, Chongqing, Taiyuan, Hong Kong, Sydney and Dallas.
