“ Hong Kong SFC to Require Investor Identification for Securities Trading in 2022, Reporting of OTC Transactions in 2023 “

 


Rico Leung, Hong Kong SFC Executive Director of Supervision of Markets:

“The new regimes will enable effective and timely surveillance of the Hong Kong securities market.  They will help reinforce market integrity and promote investor confidence, which are vital to Hong Kong’s status as a premier international financial centre.”

The consultation paper originally proposed implementing the investor identification regime in the first quarter of 2022 and the OTC securities transactions reporting regime in the third quarter of 2022.  To provide more time for the industry to prepare, the implementation timelines were extended after taking consultation feedback into account.
