The Financial Services Business Council (FSBC) of the European Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong would like to cordially invite you a presentation of the Financial Services Business Council Position Paper on FinTech. The event will be held at Deloitte, 35/F One Pacific Place 88 Queensway Hong Kong on 21 April 2017, from 8am to 10am.

The FSBC represents the European financial services industry in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (Hong Kong) and the Macao Special Administrative Region (Macao).

The subject of this position paper reports on the status and development of financial technology (FinTech) in Hong Kong. The great advancements of FinTech in recent years undoubtedly offer unprecedented opportunities for the financial services industry and its customers, but also give rise to new and increased challenges. This position paper analyses the extent to which Hong Kong, as one of the major financial centres globally and the gateway to the People’s Republic of China (Mainland China) and the region, is prepared to harness these new opportunities.

While there is currently no uniformly agreed definition, FinTech is commonly understood as the use of innovative technology in the provision of financial services, such as lending, payment services, investment advice, trading services, etc.

In order to craft this position paper, the FSBC established a task force consisting of over 30 financial services experts (including bankers, FinTech professionals, asset managers, lawyers and consultants). All views and statements expressed in this position paper are based on reports, market observations and the knowledge and expertise of the members of the FSBC.

In addition, interviews were conducted with over 20 FinTech industry stakeholders (including start-ups, global financial institutions, regulators as well as government officials).

The analysis presented in today's Country Reports shows that the economic recovery, together with the reforms carried out in many parts of Europe, has contributed to improving the labour market and social context in Europe. Unemployment is at a ten-year low and almost back to pre-crisis levels, investment is picking up and public finances continue to improve. The share of people at risk of poverty or social exclusion has decreased to pre-crisis levels. However, remaining vulnerabilities, such as the high level of public and private debt, need to be overcome to safeguard the sustainability and inclusiveness of the current economic growth.

You, as business leaders, also have choices to make in a context of uncertainty. The UK will leave the EU on 29 March 2019. That is the only certainty we have at this stage. It is therefore important that all businesses analyse their exposure to the UK and are ready to adapt their logistics, supply chains and contracts. Of course, the transition period currently under negotiation would give you more time to adapt. However, certainty about the transition will only come at the end of the process, with the ratification of the withdrawal agreement by both sides –probably early next year.
