This issue of Sidley’s Hong Kong Regulatory Newsletter discusses important regulatory and enforcement developments affecting entities that conduct regulated activities or trade securities in Hong Kong, with a special focus on those affecting the asset management sector.
- Editorial: Hong Kong regulatory outlook for 2019 - the rise of ‘Suptech’
- SFC introduces significant changes to the licensing regime
- SFC curbs improper practices by assets managers and tightens rules for margin financing
The newsletter also notes the SFC’s recent policy stance to classify security token offerings as regulated investment products, and extends the licensing regime to net persons who market or distribute tokens (whether in Hong Kong or targeting Hong Kong investors).
