The Butterworths Hong Kong Securities Law Handbook (Seventh Edition) is a detailed work of reference containing up-to-date materials on the Securities and Futures Ordinance (Cap 571). The landmark statute consolidated and reformed pre-existing legislation regulating securities, futures and leveraged foreign exchange contracts, intermediaries and markets in Hong Kong.
This Handbook reproduces the text of the Ordinance as currently in force with section-by-section annotations. In addition, this handbook highlights guidelines issued by the Securities and Futures Commission of Hong Kong along with significant judicial decisions. The annotations also provide definitions of words and phrases, discussions on practical aspects and contentious issues in reference to each section and other authoritative materials, including cross-jurisdictional references.
This edition covers the new Division 8A of Part IVA on the re-domiciliation of open-ended fund corporations, as well as amendments to subsidiary legislation concerning the investor compensation regime. The commentary of various Parts, including Parts 2, 5, 6, 8, 10, 13, 14 and 14A, schedules and subsidiary legislation are also updated with recent case law.
This series has been cited with authority in over a hundred court cases in the Hong Kong Court of First Instance, Court of Appeal, and Court of Final Appeal. As a result, this Handbook will be an invaluable source of reference for lawyers, in-house counsel, investors, intermediaries, compliance officers, issuers, regulators, academics, students and all those who are engaged or interested in the law responsible for regulating the securities and futures markets in Hong Kong.
