Report

Assessing Hong Kong as an International Financial Centre

Download

This report is the first of a major research project on “Enhancing Hong Kong’s Future as a Leading International Financial Centre”, funded by the Hong Kong Research Grants Council Theme-based Research Scheme. Throughout this report (and in the two others which will follow in 2015 and 2017) our analysis seeks to answer one specific question: What policies and legislative/regulatory changes will maximise the long-run, risk-adjusted value of financial activities to Hong Kong, given that other international financial centre policymakers react strategically to such policies?
