John KC Lee, Chief Executive of the HKSAR: “The HKSAR Government attaches great importance to strengthening and leveraging Hong Kong’s competitive edge in financial services. Hong Kong’s internationalised market, product offerings and talent pool can make proactive contributions to the financial liberalisation and innovation of the GBA not only in such established sectors as securities, banking, insurance, and asset management, but also in the emerging fields of green finance and fintech. I encourage BEA to capitalise on the immense opportunities presented by the development of Qianhai to continue to play an active role in the development of the GBA and contribute to our nation’s high-standard opening up as a home-grown Hong Kong business.”

Paul Chan Mo-po, Financial Secretary of the HKSAR Government: “Qianhai is a major cooperation platform for the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, holding a frontier position for national reform and opening up. It is an important national initiative to support Hong Kong’s economic and social development, enhance the level of cooperation between Guangdong, Hong Kong, and Macao, and construct a new layout of opening up. In this new era and journey of China’s modernisation for building a strong nation, Guangdong, Hong Kong, and Macao are strengthening their co-development and speeding up the formation of a new system for good- quality, highly efficient modern service industry.

Wang Qiang, Member of the Standing Committee of the Shenzhen Municipal Committee of the CPC: “This year marks the 75th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China, and is also a crucial year for achieving the objectives and initiatives outlined in the 14th Five-Year Plan. Shenzhen will focus on driving economic development and high-quality growth to spur the creation of an economic hub with greater global influence and a modern international metropolis. We hope BEA will continue to play an increasing role in the economic and social development of Shenzhen, fully leveraging the synergies of cross-boundary collaboration.”

Adrian Li, Co-Chief Executive of BEA: “The official inauguration of BEA Tower represents a milestone for our business development in the region. This building will serve as our strategic hub for the GBA, facilitating closer collaboration between members of the BEA Group and enabling us to provide more seamless cross-boundary services to our customers.”

Brian Li, Co-Chief Executive of BEA: “BEA has always been a supporter of the continuous development of Qianhai. Among our key business segments in the GBA, we have established our presence in securities, investment, asset management, and fintech in Qianhai. BEA Tower demonstrates our unwavering confidence in the prospects of the economy and business in the Chinese Mainland.”

Fintech Innovation Centre cum Startup Collaboration Platform – BEAST and Data Lab

Background
Fintech innovation centre cum startup collaboration platform – BEAST, introduced in 2022 on the 26th floor, BEA Tower, Kwun Tong, Hong Kong, is more than a co-working space. It stands for “BEA + Startups”, namely BEA’s fintech platform that inspires innovative co-creations and collaborations of the Bank with startups and industry partners, with the aim of promoting the development of digital transformation and applications.

Since its establishment, BEAST has collaborated with 8 local and global fintech companies, 66 startups and tech companies on 111 fintech projects, including 30 proof-of-concept (PoC) projects. BEAST has expanded into Qianhai, serving as a key part of BEA’s digital transformation and a cradle for fintech talent.

Objectives of BEAST in Qianhai

  • Establish a bridge for joint cooperation between Shenzhen and Hong Kong: BEAST will bring
    in outstanding technology startups from both cities and help them go out. 
  • Help young entrepreneurs in the Greater Bay Area: The Bank of East Asia (China) Limited (“BEA China”) and HKAI Lab will utilise their own strengths to empower young people in the
    Greater Bay Area to innovate and start businesses. 
  • Foster talent flow: BEA will serve as a bridge for the development and exchange of talents
    between Hong Kong and the Chinese Mainland, and to facilitate the integration of Hong Kong and Macau youth into the development of the Greater Bay Area. 

Startups in BEAST in Qianhai Chinese Mainland startup: 

  • Proxverse Technology, a cutting-edge intelligent process management platform, boasts an industry-leading process database that was developed in-house and is able to mine tens of billions of data points in less than a second. The company has successfully implemented many use cases with BEA China, particularly in the realms of batch processing and middle to back-end operations.

Hong Kong startups brought into the Mainland:

  • Datago Technology, a fintech startup with a primary focus on Chinese financial text analytics, excels in transforming unstructured data, including capital market-related news, announcements, and social discussions, into analysable data. This data is then applied to enhance customers’ investment research and risk management capabilities. BEA is currently exploring potential collaborations with Datago Technology, particularly in areas like credit reporting automation. 
  • Eureka FinTech, a fintech startup that integrates big data, private data, and internal bank data based on AI and graphic technology. It empowers customers in undertaking Know Your Customer and is currently exploring cooperation with BEA China in this field. 
  • Kirisame RegTech, a regtech company that allows customers to simulate their risk resistance capabilities under various scenarios on the comprehensive stress testing platform, such as liquidity crises and global financial crises. Customers can then make strategic decisions based on these simulations. BEA is currently exploring cooperation with Kirisame RegTech in this area.

Cross–boundary Fintech Collaborations

  • Fano Labs’ AI speech recognition and speech-to-text technology are used to analyze the
    recorded conversations between relationship managers and customers, improving sales surveillance. This solution was first adopted in BEA Hong Kong and is currently being introduced to BEA’s customer service centre in Guangzhou. 
  • OpenHive is currently conducting the first phase of PoC with BEA Hong Kong and BEA China for its cross-boundary data and document verification platform. After the platform is built, it will help expand cross-boundary services for businesses and individuals.
    Data Lab
    Data Lab is a part of the “GBA Digital & Innovation Lab” established by BEA China in 2022, aiming to drive data-driven cross-boundary financial services, and connect with BEAST to provide data verification for startups.
