FIA has responded to the Securities and Futures Commission (SFC) on its proposals to enhance the position limit regime in Hong Kong.
FIA generally support the SFC’s proposals to enhance and increase existing position limits in Hong Kong. FIA believes the revision of position limits is extremely beneficial including to improve risk management capabilities and for Hong Kong to maintain its competitiveness with other global financial centres. In addition, FIA strongly agrees and supports the SFC’s aims to encourage further participation in Hong Kong’s exchange traded derivatives markets which will not only result in greater market transparency but will assist the SFC in monitoring and assessing market stability.
FIA has made a number of comments to improve the functioning of the Position Limits Regime in Hong Kong, particularly focusing on the Client Facilitation Excess Position Limit and Large Open Position Reporting Requirements.
