Swire has won the TaiFoong Trophy for the sixth consecutive year. This annual, 18-hole golf competition between Swire and HSBC celebrates the strong bond between two of Hong Kong's oldest companies; "TaiFoong" is an amalgam of the two organisations' Chinese names, Taikoo ("Great and Ancient") and Wayfoong ("Abundance of Remittances"). The event was inaugurated in 1992, with each company playing host in alternate years; HSBC organised the 2017's event at the Shek O Golf & Country Club on 10th October. While HSBC claimed both closest-to-the-pin awards, Walter Li of Swire smashed his ball a powerful 280 yards to claim the longest drive award.
