The Financial Services Research Group was established in 2021 by a group of financial services and business professionals to support the development of Hong Kong’s financial markets and to accelerate Hong Kong’s leadership in the rapidly evolving areas of green finance, sustainable investment and global asset management.
FSRG draws on the expertise of the local business and financial communities, together with international best practice and a deep understanding of global trends, to make an important contribution to Hong Kong’s successful future as Asia’s premier financial hub.
Hong Kong’s asset management sector is continuously evolving, as companies seek to respond to systemic changes in the industry, while moving to take advantage of new opportunities.
Green finance has rapidly emerged as a mainstream activity that is influencing financial sector development, with Asian financial centres aggressively competing to be the green finance hub for the region.
Virtual currencies have developed rapidly as a payment mechanism, seeing a significant rise in the number of currencies, the number of transactions and market capitalisation.
