“‘For registered funds they corner the market,’ says a competitor. ‘I would rate them the best value for money in town for similar types of work’, comments a client.”


Decisive leadership in the field of authorised funds

When it comes to the authorised funds 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 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. The group represents global and local industry leaders, such as Aberdeen Standard, AllianceBernstein, Columbia Threadneedle, CSOP Asset Management, Invesco and Value Partners, 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, we are equally well regarded when it comes to insurance-linked products and exchange traded funds. 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 the liberalisation of China’s asset management sector, for both retail and private investment funds and has considerable experience of RMB Qualified Foreign Institutional Investor (RQFII) issues.
