Dear Members and Friends,
On behalf of the board of the HKFFIA, I wish to welcome you to our website.
The fresh design and user-friendly navigation were developed with your convenience in mind.
You'll find here all the familiar features you're accustomed to and the News & Events area on the homepage will give you the latest on what's happening at HKFFIA and help you to participate.
Please, do remember that by subscribing to the HKFFIA you will enjoy a large discount on the joining fee for the AFF, thus offsetting the membership fee itself, all in one stroke!
But we have more exciting enhancements planned for 2016 so stay tuned!
In the meantime, take a few minutes to look around and, please, let us know what you think. We would enjoy hearing from you.
First of all let me introduce some of the activities of our organization.
Our regular functions normally occur on a quarterly basis, during lunches or roundtable meetings, in the form of speeches delivered by prominent guest speakers. We have also added to our standard procedures some panel discussions where our members may share knowledge and information developing a very unique networking with executives of important Financial Institutions incorporated outside Hong Kong, but very active within the H.K.SAR.
In fact we may count on over 40 Financial Institutions (branches and representative offices of foreign Banks and Foreign Financial Institutions) from 25 different countries. Since last year we have introduced a new Membership category, the Associate Membership, that allows companies related to the financial business sector to participate to our activities and bring further experience and knowledge to our regular members.
Our Association was originally established as The Hong Kong Foreign Bank Representatives Association (HKFBRA) in 1986. We "rebranded" it in 2009 as The Hong Kong Foreign Financial Institutions Association (HKFFIA). Our mission remains the same: exchange knowledge, create network opportunities and represent our members’ interests with a single voice.
At the last Asian Financial Forum, held in Hong Kong in January 2016, (http://www.asianfinancialforum.com/en/info_committee.htm), we were called to offer our support and expertise, being part of its prestigious Steering Committee.
We sincerely hope that this website will be helpful to all our members. We do need your support!
We wish you a great Year of the Monkey!
The Hong Kong Foreign Financial Institutions Associations (HKFFIA)
