As one of the world’s leading financial investment centres Hong Kong has tremendous potential in the field of crowdfunding. They are looking to capture a slice of the international crowdfunding market as part of a broader plan to develop their Financial Technology industry.
As part of their development drive Professor K C Chan, Secretary for Financial Services and the Treasury, as well as Chairman of the Steering Group on Financial Technologies, released his report on the Hong Kong Fintech industry earlier this year. He is buoyed by the opportunity for crowdfunding growth and wants to improve how innovation and the supply of technological talent are viewed in the region.
