  • Summary

Hong Kong’s new regulatory regime for virtual asset service providers covers various activities involving virtual assets, such as issuing, trading, storing, and managing them. To operate in this sector, service providers need to obtain a licence from the Securities and Futures Commission and follow certain standards and rules. This regime may have both positive and negative impacts on traditional securities and futures service providers. You may have the opportunity to offer new investment choices and diversification benefits to your clients by engaging in virtual asset business. However, you may also face more competition and challenges from existing and new players in the virtual asset market and may have to invest in improving your systems and processes to comply with the new regulations and standards. In this seminar, you will hear from our speakers who are involved in virtual asset business. They will share their insights on the business potential for securities and futures brokers in this emerging sector.
