Following successful regulatory approval from the SFC, One Financial Markets has been granted permission to establish a new flagship office in Hong Kong, which will service all clients based in China and the South-East Asia region.

Ashley Clarke, CEO, One Financial Markets commented: “We are especially delighted to receive our authorisation and approvals from one of the most highly respected regulatory bodies, the Securities and Futures Commission of Hong Kong. One of our founding aspirations as a business in January 2007 was to protect the integrity and reputation of our company such that our clients could have the highest confidence in the One Financial brand. We seek to achieve this by ensuring a strong compliance culture is embedded into all our operations and respected by all our staff.”

Brian Tsui, Head of One Financial Markets Asia, added: “The SFC authorisation strongly reflects One Financial Markets’ commitment to providing clients in China and South-East Asia with better access to professional trading solutions as the increasing demand for better products and services in the region continues to grow in parallel with the advance in financial technologies.  Our new Hong Kong office will enable us to respond promptly and professionally with dedicated support and service provided within the Asia-focused time zone.  We are confident that our team will continue to raise the strong profile that One Financial Markets enjoys and will play an important role in our company’s global expansion plans.”
