From 2007 to 2015, GTJA has occupied the top three places in terms of operating revenue for seven years. While GTJA is committed to realizing the high-quality growth and a leading position in scale, it also lays emphasis on its profitability and risk management. Since 2008, GTJA has been rated as A level of AA class for nine consecutive years by CSRC, which is the highest rating for Chinese securities companies so far.

Over the past two decades of innovative development, GTJA has gradually formed a culture of “striving for excellence on the basis of risk management” and developed into a leader in all aspects in Chinese capital markets and a leader in science, technology and innovation in the Chinese securities industry. Such achievements are derived from the consensus among all staff of GTJA on an interest outlook of client orientation and overall consideration, a business outlook of striving for excellence on the basis of risk management, a talent outlook of people first and joint cooperation and the living outlook of innovation and reputation cherishing, as well as the high identification and continuous practice of the consensus.
