Financial Services

As one of the world’s top three international finance centres, Hong Kong is a prime location for financial services. Built on a prudent and robust financial regulatory regime with a well-educated workforce and the absence of capital control, companies in financial services are given all the tools needed to succeed. The Closer Economic Partnership Arrangement (CEPA) gives Hong Kong’s financial service providers and professional greater market access and flexibility in their Mainland operations. On top of that, the city serves as a gateway for foreign firms seeking access to Mainland China and for Mainland enterprises looking to go global.
