Derivative giant offers helping hands to the underprivileged

NH Futures donated many bags of rice for senior citizens living alone in an event participated by its CEO Lee Chang-ho, the company said on May 20.

CEO Lee and officials visited a welfare center in Seoul to contribute the rice at a time when the underprivileged suffers most due to the new COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak.

We hoped to offer substantial help to senior citizens who are facing difficulties due to the virus. We will continue similar efforts down the road,” CEO Lee said in a statement.

Earlier this year, the Seoul-based outfit also held an event to help out flower growers, who also experienced troubles due to diminishing sales amid the virus threats.

NH Futures is a subsidiary of NH Investment & Securities.

The former was launched in 2006 when Sejong Securities was incorporated into the National Agricultural Cooperate Federation, otherwise known as Nonghyup.

Currently, CEO Jeong Young-chae heads NH Investment & Securities, whose largest shareholder is NH Financial Group. Its stake is 76.09 percent.
