Asset Management and Family office series

15:00-16:15, 20 November 2020

Hong Kong is proving to be a popular location for family offices to establish operations and investment platforms. Indeed, the Hong Kong government is also considering further measures designed to attract family offices to Hong Kong.

This session is intended to be a practical overview of different family office arrangements, investment structures used by UHNW individuals/ families and whether they are able to satisfy the existing tax exemption regime, and the issues that family office executives will need to carefully consider to mitigate tax risks in Hong Kong should such exemption not apply. In particular, we will highlight amongst other issues:

  • Current landscape of family office and Hong Kong as a potential regional family office hub
  • Common investment structures used by UHNW individuals/ families
  • Discuss whether the current tax exemptions are applicable to family offices and the investment structures used UHNW individuals/ families
  • How to structure an investment that may not strictly come within the Hong Kong funds exemption to minimise the risk of gains being taxed in Hong Kong
