The Sincere Company's history is an amazing duplicate of that of the Wing On Company. Founded in 1900 by Ma Ying Pew (1860-1944), the Ma family were Australian Chinese who formed their store business from the profits of their Sydney fruit company. Following the success of their first store in Hong Kong, they opened their department store in Shanghai. Like Wing On, they are still in business today, but no longer involved in the silver trade.
