HKIFA 10th Annual Conference

Tuesday, December 13th 2016
JW Marriott Hotel Hong Kong

You are cordially invited to enroll into the 10th HKIFA annual conference which will be held on December 13th, 2016 (Tuesday) at the JW Marriott Hotel, Hong Kong.

With the theme “Hong Kong – building a premier fund hub”, this year's conference will look at the forces of change that will potentially shape the fund management industry and identify the critical success factors that foster it to propel to the next stage. It is particularly pertinent as the markets have gone through a tumultuous period in the last 12-18 months and there are certain major structural changes that will have major ramifications to the global investment scene in the years ahead. Against this backdrop, thought leaders from the authorities and the industry will have deep-dive discussions on evolutions in the business model, topical regulatory issues – ranging from macro prudential issues, such as liquidity risk management and corporate governance standards; to micro issues such as advice/suitability to alternative distribution platforms.

Subjects that will be covered include:

  • Global financial stability and the role of the fund management industry
  • How would the Hong Kong industry look like in 2020
  • A raft of regulatory changes have been introduced since the GFC - How do investors see these developments and what’s their experience? What is the approach that can best serve the interests of investors? We will share the findings of an investor survey which can provide insights and perspective to the discussion
  • Regulatory agenda for 2017
  • Fiduciary duties of fund managers as investors
  • Alternative distribution platforms
  • Mainland fund market in the next 3-5 years

In addition to providing a platform for networking, the event aims to provide a forum for market participants, policy makers and regulators to have in-depth discussions about issues that are pertinent to the industry, and the way forward so as to enable the industry not only to navigate this challenging time, but to take it to the next stage.

We sincerely look forward to having your participation in this event.
