Advising our clients on different opportunities and challenges of the industry.
When it comes to the authorised funds and products market, Deacons’ resources and experience are second to none, as reflected by its unmatched reputation.
As one of the world’s key financial markets, Hong Kong plays host to a number of fund managers providing a wide range of authorised products, from mutual funds and unit trusts, to insurance-linked products and exchange-traded funds (ETFs).
With the largest funds team in Hong Kong, we have unparalleled experience of the retail fund process and represent around 70% of the market. Our lawyers represent global and local industry leaders on structuring and obtaining authorisation for new funds, marketing and post-authorisation compliance issues.
Widely considered the leader for retail funds, where our experience of gaining SFC authorisation is unmatched, our lawyers are equally well regarded when it comes to insurance-linked products and ETFs. Our leadership also extends to Mandatory Provident Fund (MPF) schemes. These are Hong Kong’s mandatory pension schemes, and Deacons is proud to provide advice on scheme updates and regulatory matters to a large number of MPF providers.
In addition, Deacons is at the forefront of providing professional legal services to asset managers seeking access to Mainland China markets; and has considerable experience of Qualified Foreign Investor (QFI) issues.
