About CG

Overview

CG is a special corporation established in 1963 according to the special corporation Construction Guarantee Act due to a need for a construction-specialized financial institution that would lead the industrialization of Korea which was in ruins after the Korean War in 1950. We are the construction-specialized financial institution where cooperative members are both shareholders and clients.

By supplementing insufficient credit of constructors and protecting owners from risks to enhance confidence of construction contracts and to enable smooth performance of contracted works, we are contributing to the development of the construction industry as well as to economic growth.

Our missions have public characteristics of providing guarantee upon public works such as social overhead capital with public institutions including the government as main owners, and we perform our tasks based on related laws and regulations under the supervision of the government.
