The Hong Kong SFC considers that Wang is not fit and proper to be a regulated person as her conduct is plainly dishonest, and calls into question her character and reliability, and her ability to carry on regulated activities competently and honestly. In deciding the sanction against Wang, the Hong Kong SFC took into account all relevant circumstances, including her otherwise clean disciplinary record.
