The event aims to provide a platform for market participants, regulators, distributors and stakeholders to network and parse out issues pertinent to the industry; and to see how we can work together to foster Hong Kong’s position as a premier fund hub.

This conference may be recognised as a qualified CPD activity for the Insurance Intermediaries Quality Assurance Scheme ("IIQAS") CPD Programme (Note A). However, we do not warrant that the attendance of this conference would automatically be recognised as complying with the IIQAS CPD requirements as different self-regulatory organisations ("SRO") may have different requirements. If in doubt, the insurance intermediaries should contact their SRO for clarification.
CPD courses organized or formally approved by the specified professional bodies (including the Law Society of Hong Kong) for their own CPD programmes (confined to structured activities) can also be recognized as qualified CPD activities for the IIQAS CPD Programme provided that they are within the scope specified below. These courses are not required to be assessed by the Assessment Authority. They must be related to local insurance (or related) legislation, regulatory aspects of insurance practice in Hong Kong, insurance, actuarial science, risk management, financial planning, or other disciplines which are directly related to the work of insurance intermediaries, such as investment, law and legal knowledge, finance, business, commerce, management, engineering or communication skills. Generally, one CPD hour can be earned for each hour’s participation in these activities.
