CITIC Group Corporation Ltd., formerly the China International Trust Investment Corporation, is a state-owned investment company of the People's Republic of China, established by Rong Yiren in 1979 with the approval of Deng Xiaoping. Its headquarters are in Chaoyang District, Beijing. As of 2017, it is one of China's biggest conglomerates, with one of the largest foreign assets in the world.
In the first half of 2017, the company's net profit rose by 60%, with revenue rising 7.6%, and shares rising 10%.
Its initial aim was to "attract and utilize foreign capital, introduce advanced technologies, and adopt advanced and scientific international practice in operation and management." It now owns 44 subsidiaries including China CITIC Bank, CITIC Limited, CITIC Trust and CITIC Merchant (mainly banks) in China, Hong Kong, the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
The founder of CITIC, Rong Yiren, was one of the richest businessmen in China in the 1980s. He was also one of the earliest capitalists who stayed in mainland China.
It was reported on September 17, 2008, that CITIC was in talks to acquire Morgan Stanley. Instead Morgan sold a substantial portion of their company to Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group in addition to applying for $10 billion from the Treasury Department as part of the $700 billion Troubled Asset Relief Program.
Its subsidiary, CITIC Pacific (Chinese: 中信泰富, now known as CITIC Limited), made unauthorized bets on the foreign currency market in October 2008 and lost HK$14.7 billion (US$1.9 billion, when accounted for in mark-to-market terms). Senior executives such as Financial Controller Chau Chi-Yin and Group Finance Director Leslie Chang resigned. Its stock price plunged 55.1 percent upon the resumption of trade.
In 2015, CITIC Group sold 10% stake of CITIC Limited to a joint-venture of Itochu and Charoen Pokphand for HK$34.4 billion (US$4.54 billion); the joint venture also subscribed new convertible preferred shares for HK$45.9 billion (or US$5.9 billion). It was reported it was the largest investment ever made by a Japanese general trading company. The transaction is also the largest acquisition in China by a Japanese company, and the largest investment by foreigners in a Chinese state-owned enterprise.
