In a 2019 survey, the SFC noted that the assets under management by asset and wealth management businesses in Hong Kong increased by 20% year on year. This development is in part due to continuous enhancements to the city's policies aimed at maintaining Hong Kong as a leading asset and wealth management center: from revamping the Open-ended Funds Companies (OFC) regime to promoting cross-border fund offerings between Hong Kong and the Mainland; from enhancing the real estate investment trust (REIT) regime to fiscal concessions for private equity funds. In addition there has been significant focus on nurturing and attracting talent, promoting the city as a family office center, and on laying the groundwork for the new Wealth Management Connect scheme for the Greater Bay Area. In this session, we will explore challenges and opportunities for Hong Kong's future as an international asset and wealth management center.
