The New Manager in Charge Regime in Hong Kong

The SFC has recently clarified the way it will view senior management of licensed corporations (LCs). The new “Manager in Charge Regime” creates additional reporting obligations for LCs. The objective is to  more easily identify those ultimately responsible for key areas within the LC and hold them accountable for the conduct and behavior of the firm. “Senior management” includes not only responsible officers of LCs but “Managers in Charge of Core Functions”. These individuals may or may not be licensed. The following course will provide information regarding the new Manager in Charge Regime in Hong Kong.
