Contributing to overall national development

Thank you for visiting our website.

KIC was established in 2005 to grow the sovereign wealth of the Republic of Korea and contribute to developing the domestic finance industry.
In a short amount of time, we have established an overseas investment system that enables direct asset management and are growing as Korea’s representative fund.

During times of both crises and calm, KIC has stayed committed to
its principles of long-term, diversified investing and to performing better.
With USD 131.6 billion in assets under management as of the end of 2018,
we stand today alongside the world’s top sovereign wealth funds.

We will go forward the way we always have - pursuing sustainable higher returns and strengthening risk management in the face of global market volatility.

We also remain committed to supporting the growth of Korea's finance industry. We will expand joint investments with domestic institutional investors and increase cooperation with Korean companies in various areas, to strengthen the foundation for mutual growth.

Each of us at KIC is proud to be part of Korea’s sovereign wealth fund.
We are also aware of the responsibility that comes with this.
Through leading the growth of the domestic finance industry,
we vow to contribute to Korea’s overall national development.

I ask for your continued support as we strive to become one of the world’s leading sovereign wealth funds.

Thank you.

Heenam Choi
