1. What are the opportunities and challenges for this industry?

There are a lot of opportunities for the independent asset management industry in Hong Kong, and just generally globally. I think there is a trend for bankers, in particular the asset managers, to have sought more independence from the larger financial institutions that have traditionally dominated the market. I think clients are happy with it as well, in that they can basically be dealing with the individual because at the end of the day, it does come down to personal relationships and quite often under the independent asset management model the free structuring is actually more advantageous than working with the bigger financial institutions. Also, there's that degree of added independence, you might say; it's not a banker sitting in one financial institution trying to simply sell, let's say, a product or services of their own financial institution.
