HKICPA Seminar: Leading the Wealth Management Industry in Asia (Hong Kong)
Asia has witnessed significant growth in recent years and is becoming increasingly important in the global economy. Hong Kong and Singapore are dynamic and robust financial hubs in the region and are ranked among the top five financial centres in the world. In the face of slower economic growth and evolving financial landscape with greater demand for transparency, how do the two economies sustain their developments and reinvent the wealth management industry amid challenging global conditions?

As Asian wealth management gains momentum, the demand for services to support international businesses will escalate. In what ways have Labuan International Business and Financial Centre ("IBFC") strengthened itself as a strategic platform for connecting Asia's economies and providing a wide range of business and investment structures to meet the growing demand of international businesses?

In this seminar, the speakers will share their insights on how Hong Kong, Singapore and Labuan are leading and supporting the growth in Asia's wealth management industry.
