Noah firmly stands by common sense and its obligations, and insists on long-term and sustainable development. From the corporate level and the organizational level to the product's end-to-end process, the risk management system receives a holistic overhaul from perspectives such as risk management process, disposal of high-risk assets and organization of underlying assets, fulfilling the streamlined risk management.
Noah's risk management concept centers on five key features: Compliance, Comprehensiveness, Applicability, Timeliness and Completeness.
