("Future FinTech Labs") in New York, registered a new subsidiary FTFT Capital Investments LLC ("FTFT Capital Investments") in Dubai, and incorporated a new subsidiary -FTFT UK Limited ("FTFT UK") in United Kingdom, as an operating base to develop fintech business in Europe."
As a core element of its strategic plan, FTFT plans upon developing an array of diversified financial products and services for global institutional investors and high net worth investors through its subsidiaries which are approved to provide such services. To achieve this goal, the Company plans upon forming an operational matrix to include Future FinTech Labs, Future Fintech Digital Capital, FTFT Capital Investments, FTFT UK, NTAM and other subsidiaries with appropriate licenses to provide such services. Through the integration of its R&D center, institutional investment management and fintech, the Company intends to become a leading financial services firm that provides users with a wide range of personal online financial products and services. It is planned that these will include mobile payments, international transfers, wealth management services, member rewards, and other non-traditional proprietary applications that we believe will positively disrupt the financial services sector.
