The Banking Regulation Review - Hong Kong chapter

May 2016 | Client publication/article

Hong Kong has a three-tier system of banking institutions covering licensed banks, restricted licence banks and deposit-taking companies. There are separate licensing regimes, laws and regulators governing money lenders and money brokers.

The Hong Kong chapter looks at several aspects of the regulatory regime applicable to banks, including the Hong Kong Monetary Authority which regulates banks, prudential and conduct of business regulation, banking funding, and the control and transfer of bank business. It also considers the regulatory developments over the last year and the outlook for the year to come.

This chapter was first published in The Banking Regulation Review, 7th edition (published in May 2016) by Law Business Research Ltd.
