Leadership in Hong Kong’s private equity industry
Hywin's success in the international space has been recognized by industry bodies such as the Hong Kong Limited Partnership Fund Association (HKLPFA).

Proprietary Hywin products
Hywin has also made strides in the index investing space. In April 2023, Hywin launched a principal-protected note linked to the FactSet Hywin Global Health Care Index in collaboration with Leonteq AG and ARTA TechFin, as the first commercialization of the FactSet Hywin index. This is an example where Hywin has demonstrated its core competency in designing and executing proprietary and innovative products tailored to HNW clients’ demand, and also marked Hywin’s pioneering role in introducing index-based investing to Chinese HNW clients.

Buildout in health management
In response to the growing needs of HNW clients for health management and family well-being solutions, Hywin moved into the healthcare sector by acquiring three health-management institutions including Life Infinity in 2022. Hywin’s integration of health and wealth into one holistic proposition is a groundbreaking move in the industry, underscoring the Company’s commitment to providing innovative and comprehensive solutions to its clients, as well as unlocking the growth and value from the heightened importance of health topics in the HNW eco-system of today.

In collaboration with IBM, Hywin launched its WealthTech Platform in April 2023 to offer targeted services based on the 360-degree analysis of client profiles and preferences.
