Hong Kong’s stock market was the seventh largest in the world and the third largest in Asia in terms of market capitalization as at the end of June 2009. In terms of total equity funds raised in the first half of 2009, Hong Kong ranked third in the world and first in Asia. These types of stats are what lead people to believe that Hong Kong is the financial epicenter of Asia. How are financial services professionals in Hong Kong working towards making Hong Kong’s standing to the level of New York or London? Why is it so important that Hong Kong remains the center of financial services for Asia, and how will the financial professionals help fulfill the role of China’s financial center? Chicago Booth invites you to join us for a discussion with Booth alumni and financial services professionals who will share their expertise and perspective on the current environment, and hear their take on the future of the financial services industry in Hong Kong.
