HKMA's Global Financial Leaders Investment Summit returns with expanded scale (with photos)
The following is issued on behalf of the Hong Kong Monetary Authority:
     The main session of the Global Financial Leaders' Investment Summit, organised by the Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA), was successfully concluded today (November 7). The event brought together around 300 international and regional leaders from 160 global financial institutions, with more than 90 institutions represented by their group chairmen or CEOs.

     Under the theme of "Living with Complexity", the main summit today discussed the trends and changes that are reshaping the global financial industry, including the macroeconomic challenges posed by uncertain inflation trajectory, global growth headwinds and monetary tightening, as well as the evolving investment landscape. In addition, the speakers discussed the opportunities from three longer-term trends: Chinese economy, technology and sustainability. Mainland policymakers also shared insights into the conditions and future direction of the Chinese economy.

     The Chief Executive of the HKMA, Mr Eddie Yue, elaborated on the theme this year, "We are living through a period of complexity and uncertainty. I hope today's discussion has provided insights and inspirations on how we can all rise above complexities and capture new opportunities in such an environment." He added, "The HKMA – and Hong Kong more broadly – is a living proof of this spirit. As the HKMA celebrates its 30th anniversary this year, it is worth reflecting on the trials and tribulations that we have gone through, and how Hong Kong has grown as a global financial centre in the face of adversity. With the country's support and trust, we will continue to promote the development of Hong Kong's financial industry and contribute to our country's future growth."

     The event was attended in-person by global financial leaders across a broad range of segments, including banks, securities firms, asset owners, asset managers, private equity and venture capital firms, hedge funds and insurers. Live-streaming and replay was available on the HKMA's website.

     The three-day Summit will conclude tomorrow (November 8) with the "Conversations with Global Investors" investment forum co-organised by the HKMA, the Securities and Futures Commission and the Hong Kong Academy of Finance. The HKMA hosted a welcome dinner at the Hong Kong Palace Museum yesterday (November 6) to open the Summit.
