Derivative firm tries to become responsible corporate citizen

NH Futures said June 2 that the derivative company’s employees visited a village in Wonju, Gangwon Province, to offer helping hands to farmers there.

NH Futures established a sisterhood relationship with the village, which is located approximately 140 kilometers west of Seoul, to regularly visit there.

We have shared so many things with people in the Wonju village. As they suffer from a lack of hands amid the new COVID-19 coronavirous, we will try to provide substantial helps to them,” NH Futures CEO Lee Chang-ho said in a statement.

NH Futures is a wholly-owned subsidiary of NH Investment & Securities, one of the foremost brokerage houses in South Korea.

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

Currently, CEO Jeong Young-chae is heading the outfit whose biggest shareholder is NH Financial Group. Its stake is 76.09 percent.
