Collective Investment Schemes (CIS) are Regulated Financial Activities

Hong Kong, Asia’s leading financial centre

In most countries and in Hong Kong, Collective Investment Schemes (CIS) are regulated financial activities that gathers money from the public for investments, and may be an offence to market or distribute interests without a licence or registration. 

Christina Choi, the SFC’s Executive Director of Investment Products:

“Unauthorised investment arrangements are highly risky and investors may lose all their investments.  Investors are urged to check the new alert list and find out whether the arrangement is authorised by the SFC before investing.”

 

Notes:

  • The alert list is not exhaustive.  A searchable list of investment products authorised by the SFC for public offering, including all SFC-authorised CIS, is available on the SFC’s website.
  • For information on CIS, investments in overseas properties, ICO and digital tokens, please follow the links.
  • The Suspected Unauthorised CIS Alert List provides an early warning to investors but it is not a substitute for investors’ own due diligence. If in doubt, investors should seek professional advice.
  • The fact that an arrangement does not appear on the list should not be taken as an indication that it is, or is not, an SFC-authorised CIS or otherwise safe for investment. A searchable list of investment products authorised by the SFC for public offering, including all authorised CIS, is available on the SFC’s website.
  • If you have been solicited to participate in any suspicious CIS investment arrangement, you may inform the SFC by completing our online complaint form.
  • If you have any questions about the list, please send your enquiry to unauthCIS_alert@sfc.hk.
