Hong Kong Securities Handbook (Third Edition) is a detailed work of reference containing up to date materials on the Securities and Futures Ordinance (Cap 571), the landmark statute that consolidated and reformed pre-existing legislation regulating securities, futures and leveraged foreign exchange contracts, intermediaries and markets in Hong Kong.
This Handbook reproduces the text of the Ordinance as currently in force with details of the legislative history and forthcoming reforms. Each section of the Ordinance is augmented by detailed annotations and expert commentaries authored by Bernard Mak (editor-in-chief of Securities Law: HKSAR and PRC), Antonio M Da Roza (research fellow of the Asian Institute of International Financial Law, The University of Hong Kong; general editor of Securities Law: HKSAR and PRC), Bosco Cheng, John Shek, Philip Chan and Stanley Cheung. The text also includes excerpts from AIIFL Working Paper 4 overseen by Dr Douglas Arner, Director of AIIFL.
This edition presents greatly expanded coverage of Hong Kong securities law in the form of annotations to the SFO Schedules and subsidiary legislation. Commentary in these sections is provided on a selective basis, but all priority content is analysed. Interpretive materials published by the SFC, such as the most recent Codes, Guidelines and Circulars, are referenced here in detail to assist readers in dealing with the regulator. Last but not least, the new edition analyses the prospective reforms in specific detail, with pending sections denoted by underline, and offers further discussion of the future of financial regulation in Hong Kong, referencing materials such as reports by the SFC and the HKMA on the Lehman Brothers minibonds crisis. Annotations are fully cross-referenced and supplemented by tables of cases, legislation and other sources referred to.
Since the last edition of this book, the Ordinance has been amended with changes made to sections 18, 102, 103, 104A, 106, 107, 108, 111, 182, 213, 379, 392, 407, Schedule 1, Schedule 5, Schedule 8 and Schedule 10. These amendments are incorporated in this edition in order for it to serve as the most up-to-date reference guide for lawyers, in-house counsel, investors, intermediaries, compliance officers, issuers, media, regulators, academics, students and all those who are engaged or interested in the law responsible for regulating the securities and futures markets in Hong Kong.
