Securities & Futures Commission of Hong Kong

External committees

To reflect the diverse interests of various market participants, external committees are made up of a variety of stakeholders in Hong Kong's markets. The committees fall into two categories, namely advisory and regulatory, and play a significant role in the SFC's governance.

Advisory committee

The Advisory Committee was established under the Securities and Futures Ordinance to offer insight and advice on policy issues. It is chaired by our Chairman and comprises the CEO and not more than two other EDs, as well as a majority of external representatives appointed by the Financial Secretary under the authority delegated by the HKSAR Chief Executive.

Regulatory committees and nominations committee

These are SFC-established committees specialising in particular regulatory areas, eg, market supervision, investment products, and public shareholders' rights and interests. Members are appointed by the Board and include NEDs, EDs and a large external representation.
