Level 21, Two Pacific Place, 88 Queensway, Admiralty, Hong Kong

This event is at capacity. Please contact Kiran Sekhon with any questions.

Join us in HK on September 5 for our first fall event of 2023 in APAC. FIL Investment Management (Fidelity) has graciously agreed to host an afternoon of informative discussion on topics ranging from Digital Assets to regional Cloud use-cases. While our topics this quarter tilt towards the technical aspects of financial information, our panelists are prepping to focus the discussions on how these themes are changing our respective businesses in HK and China. For those new to these subjects, this guide will provide valuable insights and help attendees navigate the complexities of digital finance and cloud technology. 


While we have no doubt that those topics alone will get your attention, we will also host cocktails and bites for some more informal follow-up discussions. 


We are looking forward to seeing you but please bear in mind, pre-registration is mandatory

Cloud-based Financial Information Solutions Into and Out of China 

There seems to be no doubt about the significant role cloud technologies will play in the distribution and consumption of financial data globally.  

The benefits of elastic compute and storage and instant global interconnectivity are however testing traditional frameworks for data sovereignty, privacy and security.  

Data exchange into and out of China is at the nexus of this disruption and our panel features practitioners in this space that understand the challenges and have crafted innovative solutions to satisfy data regulators and consumers alike.

Hong Kong’s Emerging Global Role in Digital Asset Innovation 

With recent proactive moves by HK’s SFC and a general thaw in the crypto “winter”, Hong Kong seems to be positioning itself to lead the next wave of innovation in this exciting field. 

Clearly stricter regulation and more recognizable standards of governance in trading and custody will be important aspects of this next wave. 

Join our panel of experts as they discuss how this latest combination of institutional infrastructure and governance and distributed ledger technology will impact the financial information world.
