Photo of Mr Andrew H Y WONG, Permanent Secretary for Financial Services and the TreasuryWelcome to the Homepage of the Financial Services Branch of the Financial Services and the Treasury Bureau.

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. The city’s stock market ranked first globally in terms of funds raised through initial public offerings in 2015 and 2016. Moreover, Hong Kong is the top market in Asia in terms of asset management business, with combined fund management business at the end of 2016 valued at $18.3 trillion. Hong Kong has the world’s largest offshore pool of Renminbi liquidity of over RMB 600 billion as at end 2016. As the global offshore RMB business hub, Hong Kong offers a wide range of Renminbi-denominated investment products including listed and unlisted investment funds, insurance products, currency futures, real estate investment trusts, shares and derivatives products.

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.
