The HKIFA 17th Annual Conference is a full-day physical event from 8:45am to around 3:40pm, followed by networking drinks, on June 24th, 2024.

This year, our conference is titled “Em–”, the prefix that signifies our industry’s embarkation on a new chapter:

“Embrace” the change, “Empower” our people, “Enable” our connectivity with China, and “Encourage” innovation.  And the list goes on and on…

The reason why we use “Em–” as the theme is that we hope to turn this event into a collective effort – an event that is by all and for all.   All industry participants are welcome to provide words that start with “Em–” (e.g. embrace, empower…) to indicate what we, collectively, can and need to do more to enable the HK fund/asset management industry to rise to the next level and scale new heights. The words provided will be shown in the “Word clouds” at the Annual Conference.

We are honoured to have Mr Paul Chan, the Financial Secretary, to be our Keynote speaker.  At the event, we will address a range of topics including new technologies such as tokenization, new fund distribution platform and the eMPF platform.  As well, we will also discuss the opportunities and challenges in strengthening Hong Kong and the Mainland’s connectivity.

The conference has established itself as one of the most important industry events showcasing the strength and potential of the fund management business in Hong Kong.  Attendees would include fund managers, distributors, trustees, lawyers, accountants and other related professionals.

We very much look forward to your participation, contribution, and enrolment. For more details, please visit
