Fiducia was established by JĂĽrgen Kracht, a German national who has lived in Hong Kong since 1971 and has an extensive knowledge of the Hong Kong and China market.Â Due to an increasing foreign interest in China and Hong Kong, JĂĽrgen along with his wife Cynthia Kracht recognised the need for consulting and corporate services and launched Fiducia Management Consultants in 1982.
Since its humble beginnings as a husband and wife team in Wyndham Street in Central Hong Kong, the company has steadily expanded and assisted numerous international companies in their China ventures. Testament to Fiduciaâ€™s strength in its core capabilities, the company has grown to include specialised teams of experienced consultants and professionals at four offices strategically located in Beijing, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Shenzhen.
Fiducia means “trust” in Latin and this is what we provide in the challenging Chinese market. Our name signifies our commitment to be a trustworthy and reliable partner and to provide our clients with knowledge and experience on how to succeed â€“ a crucial factor in China.
Our Chinese name reflects Fiduciaâ€™s goals and commitment to our clients.

The origin of our logo is based on the crest of the medieval principality of Lippe, to which Lemgo belongs. Lemgo is a small town in Germany halfway between Hannover and DĂĽsseldorf, which is also the birthplace of Fiduciaâ€™s co-founder JĂĽrgen Kracht. The original Lippe crest depicts a rose with five petals, as does the Fiducia logo.
