2023 was a landmark year for Hong Kong as it bounced back from the pandemic. Bankers, investors, policy-makers, fintechs and other financial services providers rediscovered a financial centre that is not just open for business, but ready to do better business across the Greater China area and beyond.

The Global finance forum, in Hong Kong on 26 June 2024, is a chance for the global financial community to learn more about these developments and the potential to do business in and via the region. With the support of the Hong Kong Monetary Authority, this event promises to be an exceptional opportunity for industry participants to uncover new horizons.

At the Global finance forum, partnering institutions can show their global and regional leadership at a time where good advice and market-leading solutions are more important than ever. This event will give OMFIF’s partners a platform to demonstrate their commitment to Hong Kong and Greater China as a place to build client relationships and do business.
