Canadia Investment Holding (CIH) is a Cambodia-based company and Cambodia’s largest financial group with total assets of over USD 7 billion as of 2019. CIH derives its revenue by providing its consumers with a wide range of banking and financial products through its financial subsidiaries—Canadia Bank Plc., Cambodia Post Bank Plc., Funan MicroFinance Plc., Canadia Bank Lao Ltd., Sovannaphum Life Assurance Plc. and Cana Securities Ltd.
CIH was founded in September 2007 from Canadia Bank, along with another holding company—Overseas Cambodia Investment Company (OCIC), which spearheads the non-financial businesses. Canadia Bank, as the foundation and pillar of the financial group, was officially established on 11 November 1991 in the form of "Canadia Gold & Trust Corporation Ltd.", a joint-venture founded by the current Chairman, Neak Okhna Dr. PUNG Kheav Se, and the National Bank of Cambodia. Its main activities were goldsmithing, gold coins issuing and basic banking services. The Company commenced with only 20 employees and registered capital of less than half a million US dollars, but since then has spectacularly grown to be the biggest commercial bank in Cambodia with total asset of USD 6.5 billion as of 2019.
During the first decade following its inception, CIH was focusing on expansion to other sub-sectors of Cambodia finance and was laying another foundation besides commercial banking to diversify and prepare for another exceptional growth along with Cambodia's financial sector and economy. CIH's comprehensive financial services and the synergy deriving therefrom will keep strengthening its standing as Cambodia's leading financial group.
