Authorised Funds & Products

The SFC has established measures to protect investors and one of the key measures is authorisation of funds and products. Funds and similar products must be authorised by the SFC before they can be marketed to the public in Hong Kong such that investment funds and products meet the regulatory requirements and provide adequate information in the product offering document for investors to make informed investment decisions.

With over 2,000 retail investment funds authorised by the SFC, Hong Kong is an important asset management and fund distribution centre. Our Asset Management & Funds team has strong experience to assist our clients to obtain SFC’s authorisations by helping to ensure funds are complied with the requirements contemplated in the SFC Handbook for Unit Trusts and Mutual Funds, Investment-Linked Assurance Schemes and Unlisted Structured Investment Products. We assist our clients by providing them with a proper structure, well-defined investment guidelines and restrictions, ongoing disclosure requirements and other requirements related to the fund’s daily administration.
