Carlson Tong, Chairman
I wish to give special thanks to my predecessor, Eddy, for laying a very solid foundation for me to build on. I feel both honoured and conscious of the vital responsibility which rests upon me. I shall do my utmost to ensure that we stand firm as a regulator and stick to our mission through good times as well as in more challenging periods.
Ashley Alder, CEO
There has been a false assumption that regulators have to strike a balance between market development and regulation; in reality, the two align completely. I cannot emphasise enough that there is no advantage in lowering our standards to attract business. Strong regulation underpins investor confidence in our markets.
As a regulator of an international financial centre, it is important that the SFC operates efficiently and that resources are optimised.
