Happy CNY!

SFi has returned from the Xmas holidays with a bang. This month we held another Smart Conversation titled "Active Ownership & Engagement: Why Should You Become an Active Owner?" with guest speakers from Hermes Investment Management and Robeco Hong Kong. Find out more here.

This first newsletter of the year includes a SFi op-ed piece that reflects on the major sustainable finance trends of last year. We welcome you to read and share 2018: The Year That Sustainable Finance Took Root in Hong Kong. What key trends do you think will shape sustainable finance in Hong Kong in 2019? Share your thoughts with SFi and we’ll publish the best ideas in the coming months.

It was great to see so many of the SFi community in attendance at the 12th Asian Financial Forum (AFF) and at Jumpstarter Hong Kong. Ronie Mak spoke at an AFF event - Unleashing Impact Investing in Asia, which was organised by China Daily. Find out more about both events here. It’s encouraging to see impact take the stage at mainstream conferences like this and a promising start to 2019.

We hope you enjoy this newsletter. If you have any comments, feedback or questions, please email us at We’d love to hear from you.

Enjoy the CNY holidays.
