What's On

Hong Kong has long acted as a unique investment gateway for local and international investors, and the robust growth of its asset management industry has contributed significantly to the city's standing as an international financial centre.

The industry is now poised for the beginning of new chapter following a recent stream of liberalization measures on the Mainland aimed at opening up China's financial markets.

What does this mean for investors, and how should Hong Kong position itself amidst these changes?

Join this webinar, where Mr Bruno Lee and Ms Sally Wong, respectively immediate past Chairman and CEO of the Hong Kong Investment Funds Association (HKIFA), will share their views on the current and future outlook of Hong Kong's asset management industry – including opportunities and challenges brought about by developments in the Greater Bay Area, emerging investment trends, and the evolving pensions space - as well as HKIFA's recommendations for enhancing the city's status as a regional fund management hub.
