In March 2016, a number of important developments relating to the framework for professional investors in Hong Kong became effective. Intermediaries now need to comply with additional regulatory requirements with respect to professional investors.
In addition, the SFC proposed new client agreement requirements under the Code of Conduct. These proposed changes could have implications on the contractual relationship vis-à-vis an intermediary and its clients. There is a transitional period until 9 June 2017 when the changes will become fully effective but intermediaries are expected to already start the process to comply.
This course will provide an overview of the relevant updates to the Professional Investor regime and the new client agreement requirements, as well as the practical implications of the changes for financial institutions and companies.
