WISE 2015 Briefing A Success
The WISE 2015 Briefing Session held on 2 December 2014 at the office of the Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) was a success. The Session attracted a full floor of advance registered participants coming from around 65 different banks and securities firms, plus relevant major organizations, service providers, professional bodies as well as regulatory bodies. A panel discussion together with Q&As was arranged after the introduction of WISE 2015. Responses from participants were positive, asking helpful questions and making constructive comments and suggestions.
We were honored to have invited senior representatives from the Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA), the Securities and Futures Commissions (SFC) of Hong Kong, Hong Kong Interbank Clearing Limited (HKICL) and Deutsche Bank (DB) to as panel for the Session. Panel members were unanimously supportive to the WISE 2015 initiative despite its industry-driven nature, and expressed views on the benefits of doing an industry-wide exercise, as well as reminded the importance of Hong Kong's financial industry to be ready for the unknowns. They also urged senior management of banks and securities firms within the scope of WISE 2015 not to miss this great opportunity to take part in the initiative. Some great photo shots taken at the Briefing Session are now available. Check them out! You may also click HEREto download the text-only version of the presentation slides.
