Securities and Futures Commission

In Hong Kong, investment activities in the securities and futures markets are regulated by the Securities and Futures Commission (“SFC”) since 1989. The investigative, remedial and disciplinary powers of SFC are derived from the Securities and Futures Ordinance (“SFO”) and related subsidiary legislation. The SFC regulates a wide range of participants in the securities and futures markets, including fund managers.
