History

Marbo SICE

The expert in catching bull market trends in Taiwan.


At the low point of the stock market in July 1993, the founder Allen Chu firmly believed that this was the starting point of bull markets. He left a newly-built fund company and established Marbo SICE. On October 6 1993, although the market weighted index only rose by one point to around 3,800 with low trading volume of TWD 10.6 billion, investors were enthusiastic to attend an investor forum hosted by Marbo. Since then, the market was sky rocked, Marbo has become the large, most famous investment consulting company in Taiwan.

 

In 1997, Marbo invited Jason Tsai who was a famous financial expert to be the CEO of Marbo responsible for the Taiwan stock market business. In 2006, Marbo invited Rose Chin who was a famous expert in futures to be the VP of Marbo responsible for futures market business.

 

In 2007, Marbo SICE created the Marbo SICE International Business Department. Several of SITE fund managers joined Marbo and developed a business operation that covered domestic and offshore fund sales. Furthermore, Marbo created an online trading platform "e-Fund" which promoted over 639 domestic and offshore mutual funds from 20 different fund series.

 

In 2009, Marbo has become the master agent of U.S. T Rowe Price in Taiwan.

In February 2013, Sean Huang-- served at FSC, Trust Division of Taishin International Bank, Futures Exchange, and Yuanta-Polaris Futures— be the vice chairman of Marbo.

In February 2014, Jason Tsai was reappointed to supervise the Taiwan stock investment; Jessica Lee, who was the executive VP of International Business Department, was promoted to be the CEO position. As such, Marbo re-focused its core business on domestic and offshore mutual funds sales and brought its business operations to the international arena.
