About the event
2 November 2017
Sheraton Hong Kong Hotel & Towers
18:30hrs - 22:30hrs

In celebration of HKSFA's 25th anniversary, we are deeply honoured to have confirmed Dr. Randall S. Kroszner, former US Federal Reserve Governor and President's Council of Economic Advisors member, as the evening's keynote speaker. He took a leading role in developing responses to the financial crisis and in undertaking new initiatives to improve consumer protection and disclosure.

One of the highlights will be the Annual Forecast Panel. The event sees each panellist give and defend their predictions of key financial indicators (such as Hang Seng Index, and finance sector-related current events) as chosen by the panel moderator. No less than a simmering interaction is expected to be in place between the panellists and the audience.

The evening's MC and panel moderator is Mr. Mark Matthews, Bank Julius Baer Head of Asia Research and 25-year veteran of the Asia Pacific capital markets. His tremendous experience in capital markets will definitely lead the forecast panel discussion to the height and shed some light on the financial outlook of the upcoming year.

In the past 25 years, HKSFA has been dedicating to raising the standard of practice and upholding the ethical standard of local financial services industry. Rooted in Hong Kong, HKSFA has seen the investment community through Hong Kong's political changes, public health crises and market dislocations over the past quarter century. Apart from celebrating for this milestone, the gala dinner is the best occasion to connect our members and other major industry players as well.

"Congratulations for the 25th year of excellence! It is my honour to have the privilege to witness HKSFA to grow from a few volunteers to one of the largest member societies of CFA Societies. HKSFA has also become a trusted voice for the industry and the community. I wish HKSFA continue its great success!" said Mr. Simon Mak, CFA, CMA, MIPA, FHKIoD, Chief Executive Officer, Ascent Partners Group Limited (Gold Sponsor of HKSFA Annual Forecast cum Annual Dinner 2016).
