The China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC) registered three out of 17 Hong Kong domiciled funds that applied for public offering on the Chinese mainland since the MRF took effect on July 1. Meanwhile, the Securities and Futures Commission (SFC) of Hong Kong also approved four mainland funds among 30 applications received for distribution in Hong Kong.
Once again this year, instead of sending out Christmas cards and gifts, fundinfo has decided to make donations to various aid organisations, namely the following:
– Médecins Sans Frontières

So in case you are wondering where your Christmas card or gift from fundinfo has ended up, we hope that these donations will bring equal joy and happiness.
