Active online investors in Hong Kong dip to 840,000

The 2023 Hong Kong Online Investing Report by Investment Trends shows a decline in active online investors from 900,000 to 840,000, but indicates a growing optimism towards local shares and a strategic shift to defensive assets amid market uncertainties. The report also notes an increased interest in international equities, especially from the US, with international investors now making up 48% of the total. Additionally, the adoption of cryptocurrencies is on the rise following regulatory changes. The use of social media for investment advice is becoming increasingly significant, with platforms like WhatsApp and TikTok playing key roles. Brian Chong of Investment Trends highlights the sophisticated responses of investors to global economic shifts, including portfolio diversification and leveraging social media for financial insights.
