Chiyu was explicitly created by Chen to create a sustainable business with profits to be devoted to education in Xiamen and the rest of Fujian province in China. Since its founding, it has spent more than HK$1 billion in education in the province, primarily through funding Jimei University and its related schools.
Bank of China (Hong Kong) gradually accumulated a 70% stake in Chiyu in the 1970s; the rest of the bank is held by the Jimei University foundation, the government of Xiamen Municipality City and minority shareholders.
Chiyu is now operated as a subsidiary of BOCHK with the same IT platform and back office support teams.
