equities and fixed incomes amid global market volatility, mark-to-market loss on investment property of NT$5.49bn, and hedging cost of NT$6.39bn.

FYP increased 1.7% year-on-year to NT$53.70bn, securing a market share of 6.9%. Shin Kong Life has been focusing on foreign currency policies and value-focused products to acquire stable interest spreads, optimize asset liability matching, stabilize VNB margin, and accumulate CSM. FYP of foreign currency policies for 2022 was NT$41.28bn, accounting for 76.9% of the total. First year premium equivalent (FYPE) reached NT$19.28bn, and FYPE/FYP was 35.9%, beating the industry average. Cost of liabilities decreased 4 bps from 3.73% to 3.69% in 2022.

Shin Kong Life progressively invests in overseas fixed incomes, deploying funds in corporate bonds with stable credit quality across sectors, including communication, consumer, utilities and financials. As of the end of 2022, the company’s overseas fixed incomes position topped NT$2.3 trillion, and the funds were mainly invested in USD-denominated bonds. Investment return for 2022 was 3.21%, and recurring yield before hedging was 3.46%, 5 bps higher year-on-year.

Looking into 2023, Shin Kong Life will optimize its organizational constitution. Foreign currency policies and value-focused products will be promoted to accumulate CSM. The life insurer will actively promote digital service to enhance service efficiency. In addition, Shin Kong Life will continue to invest in fixed incomes and outperforming equities to enhance investment income.

Wealth management income for 2022 was NT$2.57bn, broadly flat compared to the previous year. Mutual fund sales dropped amid volatile market conditions; however, income from fixed income products and bancassurance increased 32.5% and 20.5% year-on-year, respectively, offsetting the decline in mutual funds fee income. Shin Kong Bank continues to build strong relationship with valued clients, and the number of high-net-worth clients increased 10.7% year-on-year. Also, wealth management AUM grew 8.1% year-on-year, growing steadily with continued effort to actively attract new funds and client base.

In 2023, Shin Kong Bank will optimize deposit and loan structure in order to control funding cost and maintain net interest income growth. By leveraging AI lending, Shin Kong Bank will actively

expand SME loans and unsecured consumer loans. Besides, to optimize customer experience, the company continues to reinvent digital platforms and develop digital products; a new m-banking app will be launched in the third quarter. The number of active digital customers and incomes from digital platforms and products are both aiming at double-digit growth.


Due to the decline in average daily turnover, brokerage income declined 29.7% year-on-year to NT$4.86bn. Brokerage market share was 3.43%, ranked 7th place in the industry. However, MasterLink Securities managed to balance its business interests and adjust investment strategies, achieving a consolidated after-tax profit of NT$0.36bn for the year.

Going forward this year, MasterLink Securities will adopt the strategy of “enhancing operational efficiency, expanding profit sources, optimizing digital experiences, stabilizing investment income and promoting ESG” to cope with market challenges ahead and demonstrate value.
