November 21, 2011

New York

Emerging markets expert Mirae Asset Global Investments ("Mirae Asset") offered today its enthusiastic congratulations to LPGA player Brittany Lincicome for her outstanding achievements in 2011, both on and off the golf course.

Lincicome earned two victories this season at the CN Canadian Women's Open and the ShopRite LPGA Classic. She also tied for second at the RR Donnelley LPGA Founders Cup and tied for third at the LPGA State Farm Classic, among numerous other top placements in 2011. Her outstanding performance garnered over $1.12 million in official season's earnings this year, putting her sixth on the LPGA money list, up from 15th in 2010.

Lincicome teamed up with Mirae Asset last October, becoming the first American LPGA player to sign a primary endorsement deal with the firm, and she has worn headwear and clothing featuring the Mirae Asset logo during competitive play throughout the 2011 season.

"We applaud Brittany Lincicome for her outstanding achievements this year. As Mirae Asset further expands its role as an emerging markets expert in the U.S., we've been extremely proud of our sponsorship of an American LPGA golfer of her caliber," remarked Joon Kwun, President and CEO of Mirae Asset Global Investments (USA). "Brittany's game illustrates sustainable competitiveness and the potential for long-term success, the same qualities we look for when we invest. Her exceptional sportsmanship and charitable work also exemplify the values of Mirae Asset. We're honored to be associated with her through our sponsorship in the past year and we look forward to share continued success with her in the coming year."
