The Hong Kong Academy of Finance (AoF) announces that the 2024 intake of the Financial Leaders Programme (FLP) is open for application today (15 November). Commencing in 2022, the FLP aims to inspire financial talents, to equip them with a mindset to lead and look at issues from a macro perspective, as well as to expand their network.
The FLP offers a unique opportunity for participants to engage in dialogue with top leaders in financial services and other sectors. Each year, the FLP will admit around 20 promising financial talents from a diverse background at approximately two levels below the CEO position. The FLP will be offered on a part-time basis and last for about nine months, with the 2024 Programme commencing in April 2024. Application will open between 15 November and 17 December 2023. Applications received will be considered by the Membership Committee of the AoF. Further information about the FLP and the application form are available from the AoF website.
The FLP is jointly supported by the Financial Services and the Treasury Bureau and the financial regulators in Hong Kong, namely the Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA), the Securities and Futures Commission, the Insurance Authority and the Mandatory Provident Fund Schemes Authority.
Mr Eddie Yue, Chairman of the AoF and Chief Executive of the HKMA, said, “To strengthen Hong Kong’s position as an international financial centre amid this complex and ever-changing macro environment, we need to develop more financial leaders with global vision and leadership mindset to drive innovations and spearhead changes. The FLP has been running for two years and has received very positive feedback from the participating financial institutions, regulators, and cohort members. I strongly recommend the FLP and encourage our financial talents to seize the opportunity to join or nominate your promising staff to join.”
