权威政府顾问称香港金融科技改革迫在眉睫

近日,一位来自香港金融发展局(Financial Services Development Council)的政府顾问在一份新报告中称,香港在金融科技发展方面已经落后,要想将来成为全球金融科技中心,就必须彻底升级其金融科技目标,进行广泛深远的监管改革。

报告显示:“尽管香港金融领域规模庞大,但在金融科技界影响力并不太大...香港‘金融’强劲,‘科技’却并不有力。”

报告还指出,香港市场小、现有企业占主导、技术创新史短而处于劣势。如果香港不能克服这些缺点,新加坡甚至澳大利亚取代其地位,成为亚太地区金融科技中心。

报告建议,“香港不必努力成为金融科技多面手,而应专注金融科技内关键领域,利用其主要优势构建知名度与专长。”,并建议香港政府设立金融科技办公室,以采用自上而下的方式促进组织金融科技业。

香港还应利用其毗邻中国及全球对其监管机构的信任等比较优势。

据统计,目前金融服务占香港GDP的18%,创造了6%的就业岗位。

Hong Kong’s heavyweight government advisory says the government needs to up its game on fintech.

Hong Kong must radically upscale its fintech ambitions and introduce far-reaching regulatory reform if it wants to be a global fintech hub.

In a new report, the powerful government advisor, the Financial Services Development Council, said Hong Kong is falling behind its peers and must play to its strengths if it wants to grow its fintech scene.

“Hong Kong, despite its large financial sector… has only a modest showing in the FinTech space,” the report said.

“Hong Kong is very strong in ‘Fin’, but not strong in ‘Tech’.

“Does this matter? Yes… because over the coming decade or so it may dramatically alter today’s financial services.”

Hong Kong suffers disadvantages such as its small market, the dominance of incumbents, and a less-than-storied history of technological innovation, the report noted. But rather than overcoming these weaknesses, regulators have sat on their hands allowing Singapore and arguably Australia to overtake Hong Kong as the Asia-Pacific regional fintech capital it concluded.

“Hong Kong is a latecomer and, to have any chance of competing with and if possible overtaking other centres, it must focus.

“Hong Kong should not try to be a FinTech generalist but should focus on key areas within FinTech and build its reputation and expertise based on its strongest advantages.”

The report recommended the government create a fintech office aimed at boosting and organising the fintech sector from the top-down.

It should also build on Hong Kong’s comparative advantages such as its proximity to China and the global trust in its regulatory institutions.

Financial services make up 18 percent of Hong Kong’s GDP and provide 6 percent of its jobs.
