Hong Kong SFC

Hong Kong, Asia’s leading financial centre

Hong Kong SFC: “The SFC considers that Ho is not a fit and proper person to be licensed as Ho’s conduct casts serious doubts on his integrity and reliability, and his ability to carry on regulated activities honestly.  Having considered all the circumstances, the SFC has decided that a life ban on Ho is appropriate and commensurate with the gravity of his conduct.”

Ho Pak Hay was licensed under the Securities and Futures Ordinance to carry on Type 1 (dealing in securities) and Type 2 (dealing in futures contracts) regulated activities, and was accredited to KGI and KGI Futures respectively between 10 October 2017 and 12 July 2019.  Ho Pak Hay is currently not licensed by the SFC.
