The Hong Kong Government’s strategy on FinTech

The Hong Kong Government has published its blueprint for developing its FinTech industry and ecosystem amid heightened competition from global FinTech hubs such as London and Singapore. The strategy advocated by the Government is to focus on areas where Hong Kong has a competitive edge and which are supported by regulations that recognise digital approaches to financial services and activities. A cross sectoral body - the FinTech Office - will be set up and charged to execute the Government’s strategy and to spearhead the related policies, regulations and other initiatives. Here, John Casanova, Yuet Ming Tham and Alan Tsang of Sidley Austin LLP analyse the strategy and a consultation paper issued by Hong Kong’s Securities and Futures Commission on its proposed guidelines on online distribution and advisory platforms, which can be seen as an example of the application of Hong Kong’s FinTech strategy.
