2023 Policy Address

In response to the invitation to submit views for the Chief Executive's 2023 Policy Address, HKIRA submitted a letter outlining several thoughts on how to enhance corporate governance, improve market liquidity, and strengthen Hong Kong's position as a centre for equity capital raising and attract international listings. Our proposals are summarised as follow:
- Require listed companies to appoint a dedicated investor relation representative
- Government to provide financial support for continuing education of IROs
- Government to fund independent equity research coverage for listed small/mid-cap companies
- Government to promote investments into listed small/mid-cap companies
Going forward, HKIRA will continue to engage with the government and regulators on ways to improve the investor relation industry and support our professionals, so to enhance the overall standing of the overall Hong Kong market.
