We have spent the past 10 years honing our sword, in order to unsheathe it now. Regardless of adversity or prosperity, we have been consistently doing one thing: to provide ultra-high-net-worth Chinese families with a full range of global asset allocation and financial services with integrity, professionalism, and unwavering focus. Now we are truly becoming the fusing agent and the protective barrier between family fortune founders and their businesses, helping them to establish roots outside of China and to pass the torch to the next generations.
With friendly activist strategy, we are moving forward along with the giants. Adhering to the spirit and principles of family wealth inheritance, we strive towards the path of discovery and development -- accumulating valuable experiences in order to construct an unique financial ecosystem, which will eventually make DL a navigator and a bridge in connecting Chinese family’s wealth with the global markets.
