Building a Robust Onshore Strategy to Capitalise on the China Opportunity

What are experts’ visions of the China onshore opportunity and how to best capture it? From an investors’ perspective, how investible is the onshore market and what GBA products and services are available? From a strategic standpoint, how are private banks and wealth managers positioning themselves to capitalise on the China opportunity and how does GBA fit into that context and their overall onshore strategy? Join our panel of expert wealth managers and private bankers to discuss.

Cross-Border Advisory and Dual Licensing Thought-Leadership

Licensing for cross-border advisory is a complex endeavour, with different laws governing financial regulations, taxation and dispute resolution processes in different jurisdictions. How then, can private banks remain compliant and abide by the changing regulatory requirements when operating across multiple jurisdictions whilst mitigating risk? How can they prepare to offer full advisory-led private banking services in a context of further WMC expansion and greater connectivity in the Greater Bay Area? From a tax incentive perspective, what opportunities are there for PB clients? In this key session, Patrick Yip, Vice Chair of Deloitte China, will provide thought-leadership on issues at play in the GBA and how to be successful and compliant in the current regulatory environment.

Demand, Growth and Income within the GBA Puzzle

What are the more eye-catching investment themes offered by the GBA that were previously inaccessible to non-PRC (Hong Kong & Macau) investors? How much is the capital flow quota sidelining larger investment flows (northbound and southbound) and what effect will increasing the quota have on both demand and product mix? On the client side, how have RMs been showcasing the opportunities for WMC products amongst their clients? What education is being undertaken at a corporate level to maintain organisational compliance with changing GBA regulations? As the scheme and investment experience evolve, will the WMC clients of today — with their smaller investment caps — represent the new breed of HNW clients 10 years from now?

Opportunities for Family Offices in the GBA and Vital Insights into the Opportunities of Venture Capitalism

What advantages are there for SFOs and MFOs when it comes to the GBA and what new business opportunities does the region create? What direct VC investment opportunities should be considered by FOs?
