Regulation has traditionally been the talk of the back-office. But since the 2007-2008 global financial crisis, financial executives have been keeping a more watchful eye on the evolution of risk management and concurrent regulatory changes being discussed and adopted across the globe.
Asian regulators have been playing catch up to their Western counterparts, with each jurisdiction adopting different facets of global best practice to preserve order in their respective banking sectors and financial markets. Meanwhile, the presence of international financial institutions in Asia has caused global regulations to seep into the region’s financial services industry. The resulting regulatory landscape has grown increasingly fragmented and understanding the various nuances across Asia Pacific markets can be time-consuming and burdensome, particularly for global and regional players.
Regulation HK tracks and analyses financial regulation across Asia to keep readers informed on the changes and their impacts. Since November 2013, our audience and subscription base have grown to include key regulatory bodies, exchanges, banks, asset managers, law firms, technology vendors and consultants.
Through our research, reporting, featured content and events, we play a key role in the regulatory agenda.
