Hong Kong brokers propose expansion of investment visas

The Hong Kong Securities and Futures Professionals Association has suggested that the Capital Investment Entrant Scheme should be augmented to include primary market products. The group said this would facilitate the development of green finance and technology, and innovation in the city. The suggestion was made in light of a plan to relaunch the visa scheme as announced by Financial Secretary Paul Chan Mo-po. The association recommended that the investment scope of the scheme should encompass not only the secondary but primary market so that local green finance and technology and innovation could be advanced. It argued that in addition to providing more channels, extending the scheme to the primary market would enhance investor participation and strengthen environmental, social, and corporate governance for these projects.
