Complyport Hong Kong provides dedicated regulatory and compliance support to its clients which include some of the industry’s largest multi-jurisdiction fund managers (both hedge and private equity), each typically with global assets under management exceeding $1bn.

In addition, it supports several global institutional brokers, one investment bank, and certain other financial service providers.

With the number of international fund managers in Asia continuing to rise, and many prominent hedge funds recently launching offices in Hong Kong, demand for local expertise in compliance and regulation has never been greater. Hedge funds in Hong Kong alone are estimated to hold assets of approximately $50bn. Complyport Hong Kong services this growing demand.

The firm brings 17 years of credible local experience and an unrivalled technical expertise in Hong Kong regulation and market practice, setting it apart from other recent entrants into the compliance services sector in Asia. Unlike some other providers, the firm specialises in regulatory compliance only and does not offer other related services such as accounting, tax or recruitment.

The firm provides bespoke, cost-effective compliance and regulatory advisory services to the local offices of international asset management firms and institutional securities brokers, drawing on real local knowledge and insight gained over many years of practice.

It provides professional support to firms which prefer not to retain a law firm, lack a work load sufficient to justify employment of full-time compliance staff, or have a substantial compliance function overseas but require independent and proactive supervision of their Hong Kong office with concurrent reporting to their home office.

Complyport Hong Kong is led by a US-trained securities lawyer, Stuart Somer, who has worked in asset management and regulatory compliance in Hong Kong since 1996, and can also provide assistance with US SEC and CFTC requirements.

The firm was recognised as Hong Kong’s Best Advisory Firm — Client Service in 2014 and as Best Advisory Firm — Regulation and Compliance in 2015 at the HFM Asia Hedge Fund Service Awards.
