Corporate governance for the financial services sector - Workshop 2018

My Offerings


In the post Global Financial Crisis world, governments around the world leaped into action with a series of legislative and administrative measures to regulate the financial services sector. Much of the regulations involve administrative measures to enforce the law, codes and guidelines without necessarily resorting to litigation or prosecution.

Measures have been introduced in Hong Kong by the Securities and Futures Commission under the auspices of Managers in Charge (MIC). Whilst bearing a clear resemblance to the SMR, it is not as detailed and prescriptive as the UK’s regulatory demands. Nevertheless, this has implications for HK securities companies, in particular the corporate governance of such companies.

This workshop will discuss the SMR and MIC implications for the way financial services companies will be governed.

Key topics covered:

  • SMR and MIC implications
  • New regulatory measures on corporate governance in the financial services companies
