In April 2021, the Hong Kong Stock Exchange (HKEx) released a consultation paper on proposed changes to Corporate Governance Code and Related Listing Rules. In short, we support the proposed changes in the revised Code in areas such as improving board gender diversity, the introduction of lead independent directors, and highlighting the linkages between ESG and CG. However, as a community of private investors, we want to see Hong Kong take even bolder steps in sustainability.
SFi submitted a collective consultations responses supported by 16 co-signatories including family offices, private investors and asset managers. Our detailed consultation response can be found here.
