What's On

The Chinese Government along with the governments in Hong Kong and Macau announced in 2020 to establish a cross-boundary Wealth Management Connect pilot scheme in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay Area (GBA) and unveiled some frameworks of the scheme. This is another step towards opening China's capital markets. Drawing on prior experiences, the Northbound and Southbound Connects will be conducted and managed in a closed-loop system. The key to understanding this is to recall that China's capital account is yet fully liberalized.

To further strengthen Hong Kong's role as a regional insurance hub, the Hong Kong Insurance Authority is pursuing discussion with the relevant Mainland authorities to enable Hong Kong insurance companies to set up service centers to facilitate cross-boundary services/ products in the GBA through 'Insurance Connect'. The potential implementation of 'Insurance Connect' could further streamline the insurance process across the border, allowing Mainland customers to settle premiums and process claims for their purchased insurance products within GBA cities.

Join the webinar on 3 September to explore the opportunities from the GBA Connects initiative. At this webinar, the speakers will uncover:

- Impact on workforce/ labour demands from the GBA Connects initiatives, specifically on financial services
- How qualifying funds for the Wealth Management Connect can also be an opportunity to educate individual investor
- Some general insurance and reinsurance opportunities for reinsurance for specialty line and overseas projects
- Insights from retail investor surveys on x-border investments
- Broader financial services opportunities in the GBA
