Licensing and restructuring

As a prominent international financial centre, Hong Kong provides extensive access to international markets and has a business environment that encourages growth – facilitated by its robust regulation and simple tax regime.  Access to this market thus requires standards commensurate with Hong Kong’s reputation as an international finance centre to be met before relevant authorisations are granted.

We can help you navigate the complexities of applying for licenses to undertake financial activities with the main financial regulators in Hong Kong – the HKMA, SFC, and HKEx.  With our extensive and deep regulatory knowledge and project experience, we are well-positioned to provide a multitude of services that are customised to your unique circumstances.  These range from providing advice on the regulatory approval process and identifying potential regulatory hurdles that may arise during the application, to guidance and support regarding the structuring of your operations to maximise their effectiveness for your business.
