会员通讯 － 2019年第一季
Dear fellow members, connectors, and committees,
It is my true honour and pleasure to share to write to you and share with you our exciting recent past and future. In January, we had a wonderful FOSS event at the HK Stock Exchange which featured about 500 attendees for our 3 days event. It was an absolute joy and resounding success to have supportive attendees from all over the world to participate in this marquee event of the associations on an annual basis.
Secondly, we have been invited by the CFA Institute, and Mercer to co-host a lunch seminar which is exclusive for asset owners that we focus on the Impact investing / ESG effort. Again, it was a great success on March 25thas we have featured Eva, Robert, Ilex and my humbled self-more coverage in due course) being speakers representing the associations.
Going forward, the Associations will continue to organize premium, and targeted events which specifically address our members and industries’ needs. We have already been engaging key regulators, government entities, and stakeholders to further broaden and deepen our penetrations and reach so to be better represented and to be heard. Various parties have been reacting to our interactions very positively, and we look to further enhance our reputations, engagements and impact of the associations and industries in time to come.
Kindly see below for a list of events coming up which maybe of interests to you as well:
“9th Latin America China Investors Forum (LACIF)”
Venue: Beijing, China
Time: March 26th, 2019
The associations are nothing without your support, and kindly reach out to us should you like have any topics or initiatives that maybe of interests to you and we look to be a very member-focused association which will continue to enhance ourselves and the industries to the next plateau.
