Description

The Hong Kong-Mainland China Mutual Recognition arrangement and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) passports are three different arrangements aiming to facilitate the cross-border marketing of collective investment schemes in Asia. The three types of passports have both common and distinctive features and are at different stages of implementation. These passports will exist alongside the possibilities for registering undertakings for collective invesment in transferable securities (UCITS) in certain Asian countries that they cover. The panel will analyse the features of these different cross-border marketing facilities, and discuss respective successes and opportunities they may bring about.
