ChinaAMC (HK), HashKey and Hamsa Forge MoU to Propel Web 3.0 in the Asset Management Industry in Hong Kong

Hong Kong, 17 November 2023- ChinaAMC (HK) has signed a memorandum of understanding (“MoU”) with Hash Blockchain Limited (“HashKey”) and HamsaTech Hong Kong Limited (“Hamsa”) to jointly develop and promote Web 3.0 in the asset management industry in Hong Kong.

The Government and financial regulators of Hong Kong have been proactively embracing the megatrend of Web 3.0

In the 2023-2024 Budget, the Government of Hong Kong underscored the importance for the city to seize the “golden opportunity” of Web 3.0.

The Financial Services and the Treasury Bureau (FSTB) announced a series of major initiatives for fintech development in Hong Kong in the Hong Kong FinTech Week 2023, including promoting real economy related applications and innovations by the Virtual Assets (VA) and Web3.0 sector.

On the regulatory side, the Securities and Futures Commission (“SFC”) has also introduced a raft of new regulations in response to the evolving landscape of virtual assets, designed to protect investors while encouraging innovation. With regard to tokenisations, the SFC issued a circular on intermediaries engaging in tokenised securities-related activities and a circular on tokenisations of SFC-authorised investment products to shed light on the regulatory expectations from an investor protection perspective.
