TAIPEI (Reuters) - Taiwanese state-run financial holding company Mega Financial's newly appointed chairman Michael Chang told lawmakers on Wednesday the firm is investigating whether clients of its New York banking branch engaged in money-laundering activities.

Chang was speaking during a parliamentary session in Taipei.

The executive was appointed by the Taiwan government earlier this month after the New York banking unit was hit by a U.S. fine for anti-money laundering violations.
