Most Influential Women



After having played an instrumental role in the real estate industry in California, Pollyanna Chu and husband Nicholas returned home to Hong Kong to form Kingston Securities. Not only is Chu responsible in laying the financial rules of investment in the company, but she is also an integral part of stock business to increase the investment chances for customers.

The investment-banking segment picked up in 1999 and Kingston Securities’ business began to move to areas such as the newly listed securities and the merger of the listed companies. Progressing from scratch, her company has now grown into a multi-business corporation.

Chu follows her father’s belief in diligence, modesty and thriftiness, and puts ample emphasis on modesty. She shoulders many social positions, thus is a strong believer in delegation, and makes sure that she ears every single escalation.

It does not stop here; she is a jewellery and watch collector and has bought 75% of stake in Sincere Watch, a distributor of Frank Muller watches in China. Pollyanna Chu never forgets to repay the society and consistently works for the benefit of the humankind in the education sector.
