Hong Kong Academy of Finance

The financial industry has become more and more globalised and technology-driven. The traditional boundaries between different sectors within the financial industry and between the financial and non-financial industries are increasingly blurred. The ability to upgrade our professional talent pool by promoting the global and inter-disciplinary perspectives of our talents and strengthen our applied research capability is crucial to the maintenance of Hong Kong’s position as a premier international financial centre. The Hong Kong Academy of Finance (AoF) was set up to enhance our soft power in a sustainable manner in these aspects.

The AoF is set up with full collaboration amongst the Hong Kong Monetary Authority, the Securities and Futures Commission, the Insurance Authority and the Mandatory Provident Fund Schemes Authority. The AoF brings together the strengths of the academia, the industry, professional training institutes and the regulatory community to develop financial leadership and promote research collaboration. The mission of the AoF is to serve as:

  • A centre of excellence for developing financial leadership; and
  • A repository of knowledge in monetary and financial research, including applied research.
