France and Hong Kong to mutually recognise funds

October 12, 2017 | News |

Good news for fund houses in France and Hong Kong: The Financial Market Supervisory Authorities in France (“AMF”) and Hong Kong (“SFC”) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) regarding the mutual recognition of funds. This will give fund distributors and investors in both countries easy access to a large selection of new investment opportunities as the agreement allows funds from Hong Kong and funds from France to be sold to investors in the respective market.

After similar agreements with Mainland China and Switzerland, this agreement between Hong Kong and France is the first with a member of the European Union to set the regulatory framework for buying and selling funds.
