Wing Hang Bank was established in 1937 in Canton. The bank set up its first subsidiary in Macau in 1941. In 1973 Wing Hang Bank was acquired by Irving Trust, a US bank, which in 1988 merged with Bank of New York, which began gradually to sell out its share in the Hong Kong bank. In 2003 Wing Hang Bank was acquired by a medium-sized Hong Kong-based Chekiang First Bank (established in 1907 in Hangzhou).
