Financial stability, efficiency and openness under a level playing field are core strengths of Hong Kong’s financial markets. The Financial Services Branch is committed to upholding and promoting such core strengths, as we seek to consolidate and enhance Hong Kong’s status as an international financial centre, premier asset management centre and offshore RMB centre. While frontline market regulation is performed by independent statutory regulators, it is the Financial Services Branch’s policy responsibility to drive, facilitate and co-ordinate initiatives to ensure that the overarching framework would enhance protection for investors and promote market development in the face of global needs and local circumstances.

Our financial sector has been acknowledged by International Monetary Fund’s Financial Sector Assessment Programme to be one of the largest and most developed in the world. Hong Kong also ranked in the top three of over 80 financial centres in the latest Global Financial Centres Index. The city’s stock market ranked second globally in terms of funds raised through initial public offerings in 2014. Moreover, Hong Kong is the top market in Asia in terms of asset management business, with combined fund management business at the end of 2013 valued at $16 trillion. Hong Kong as the premier offshore Renminbi centre has the world’s largest offshore pool of Renminbi liquidity of over RMB1 trillion and a wide range of Renminbi-denominated investment products including bonds, shares, exchange-traded and unlisted funds and insurance policies.

This Homepage is designed to provide you with an overview of our organisation, policy objectives and ongoing initiatives. To take forward these initiatives, your suggestions and comments, especially on our consultation papers, are most welcome.

Thank you.
