Family Office Symposium at the Asian Financial Forum

PWMA, in conjunction with the Hong Kong Trade Development Council, once again hosted the Family Office Symposium on 12 January as part of the 16th Asian Financial Forum.

With participants in-person as well as on Zoom, the Family Office Symposium opened with welcome remarks from Amy Lo, Chairperson of the PWMA Executive Committee, followed by a keynote speech from Christopher Hui, Secretary for Financial Services and the Treasury of the Hong Kong SAR Government.  This was followed by a fireside chat between Weijian Shan, Chairman and CEO of PAG, and Ronnie Chan, Chairman of Hang Lung Properties, where we learned about where returns can be found in a number of private markets across Asia Pacific. 

Later, a panel of speakers discussed the continued value of diversification, across markets, public and private markets and different sectors.  The symposium ended with a panel on the tax environment for family offices in Hong Kong and speakers expressed their optimism toward a tax incentive in the works for single family offices in Hong Kong.

Thanks to all speakers for sharing their expertise and we hope to see you all again next year!
