澳大利亚与香港签署金融科技监管合作协议

近日,澳大利亚与香港有关金融服务监管机构签署协议,未来双方金融科技企业发展将迎来更多自由空间。

未来,不仅澳大利亚金融科技企业将可以借助这一协议,与香港证券与期货事务监察委员会(后文简称SFC)进行更好的沟通,香港企业在澳大利亚也将享受同等待遇。

对于本次协议,澳大利亚证券投资委员会(后文简称ASIC)负责人Cathie Armour表示:

“香港经济总量已经达到3160亿美元,而金融服务业是其中一项重要的组成部分。对于澳大利亚企业来说,这份协议将帮助他们更好地理解和进入香港市场,进而带动整个澳大利亚创新商业发展。”

据悉,SFC和ASIC将就市场态势和金融监管展开多方面的信息交流互通。

国际清算银行最新一份报告显示,目前香港地区仅有一家金融科技借贷服务公司,而且很少有香港企业进入澳大利亚市场,因此能从上述协议中受益的企业数量应该也很有限。

虽然中国大陆地区金融科技发展一片欣欣向荣,但ASIC本次协议却仅仅覆盖了香港地区。

据了解,目前澳大利亚地区共有20家金融科技借贷机构,但是基本没有公司在香港开设分支机构。

Australia and Hong Kong’s financial service regulators have penned an agreement which will give fintechs more freedom to expand.

The agreement will allow Australian fintechs hoping to enter Hong Kong a hotline to Hong Kong’s regulator, the Securities and Futures Commission, making it easier to understand the regulations in a foreign country.

The reciprocal will be offered for Hong Kong companies wishing to enter Australia.

“Financial services are a major contributor to Hong Kong's US$316 billion economy. The Cooperation Agreement is a significant boost for Australia's burgeoning fintech sector and will ease entry into this important market for innovative Australian businesses,” said Cathie Armour, commissioner of Australian regulator ASIC.

ASIC and the SFC will also share information on market trends and fintech regulation as part of the deal.

Australia and Hong Kong are top trading partners but what will be gained through a fintech agreement remains unclear.

A recent report by the Bank for International Settlements found that Hong Kong had only one fintech lending company, suggesting there are very few Hong Kong players that could enter Australia and therefore benefit from the agreement.

Mainland China has a vibrant and flourishing fintech scene, but the ASIC agreement is limited to Hong Kong.

Australia has over 20 fintech lenders, but very few operate in Hong Kong.
