Seminar: Acquisitions & Disposals of SFC Licensed Firms

Acquisitions and disposals of shares of brokers, asset managers, wealth managers, investment advisers and other firms licensed by the Securities and Futures Commission ("SFC") are not only potentially subject to approval by the SFC but also raise specialized legal and regulatory risks for the buyer. Poor compliance standards prior to the completion of the transaction may, for example, result in disciplinary action well after the completion of the transaction. Despite these challenges, the past few years have seen a marked increase in such transactions.

Please join us for this lunch time seminar as we:

  • provide an overview of how these transactions work;
  • discuss how buyers can manage the SFC approval process;
  • present the legal and regulatory risks posed by these transactions; and
  • explain how sellers can minimize the risks of a transaction failing due to the refusal of SFC approval or buyer dissatisfaction with legal and regulatory risks.
