AoF Roundtable - Antitrust, Privacy, Cybersecurity, Sanctions, and FDI

6 June 2023


On 6 June 2023, the Hong Kong Academy of Finance (AoF), hosted a roundtable discussion with leading experts focusing on new regulations and enforcement trends on antitrust, privacy, cybersecurity, sanctions, and FDI facing companies doing business in the US, EU, UK and Hong Kong.


Antitrust developments could have profound implications for financial institutions e.g. those looking for fintech talents or setting green standards.  Moderated by Rocky Mui of Clifford Chance (top), Brent Snyder (lower left) and Jindrich Kloub (lower right) of Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati (WSGR) shared enforcement trends in various jurisdictions on a range of subject areas such as labour market, digital sector, M&As, ESG collaborations, etc. 

Data is the new oil. As more financial institutions plan to use AI, an understanding of data issues is crucial. Roger Cheng of the Securities and Futures Commission (top left) moderated a session where Cedric Burton of WSGR (top right), Kimi Liu of He Ping Law Firm (lower left), and Ling Ho of Clifford Chance (lower right) provided updates on developments in the EU and the GDPR, Mainland China’s data export security assessments and IPR issues related to AI, etc.

Moderated by Karen Man of Baker McKenzie (left), Mike Casey of WSGR (right) discussed the sanctions imposed on Russia, secondary sanctions, review of FDI on national security grounds, implications for Hong Kong financial institutions and how to manage those risks.
