July Launch For Hong Kong And China Fund Sales

The Securities and Futures Commission (SFC) and the China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC) have signed a Memorandum of Regulatory Cooperation on Mainland-Hong Kong Mutual Recognition of Funds, which will allow eligible Mainland and Hong Kong funds to be distributed in each other’s market through a streamlined vetting process. The scheme will be implemented on 1 July 2015.

The Memorandum also established a framework for exchange of information, regular dialogue as well as regulatory cooperation in relation to the cross-border offering of funds.

"The Mutual Recognition of Funds initiative is a major breakthrough in the opening up of the Mainland’s funds market to offshore funds. It will also open up a new frontier for the Mainland and Hong Kong asset management industries and make available a wider selection of fund products to investors in both markets," the SFC’s Chairman, Mr Carlson Tong said.

"More importantly, this initiative will lay the foundation for the CSRC and SFC to jointly develop a fund regulatory standard, promoting the integration and development of the Asian asset management industry," Mr Tong added.
