This chapter presents an overview of the legal and regulatory framework for financial products and asset management in Hong Kong. The chapter discusses the regulatory framework for asset management generally and provides an overview of the legal and regulatory framework for a variety of financial products. Most financial products are largely matters of private contract and therefore governed by the common law framework, with disputes adjudicated by the courts. However, in Hong Kong a variety of statutes address an ever growing range of financial products, including: bills of exchange and cheques (Bills of Exchange Ordinance); company shares (Companies Ordinance and Listing Rules); and security interests (Companies Ordinance, Bankruptcy Ordinance, and other property related ordinances). The chapter also considers opportunities for the asset management industry in Hong Kong.
