Officially a part of China, Hong Kong is a wealthy and business-friendly city that enjoys a high degree of autonomy in its internal affairs. This has turned Hong Kong into one of the top jurisdictions in the world to incorporate various financial services companies, including CFD & forex brokers. Although Hong Kong does have a sizeable trading community of its own, CFD brokers in Hong Kong most often use the city as a base for their regional business across China and Asia.
CFD brokers in Hong Kong are overseen by the well-regarded financial regulator known as the Hong Kong Securities and Futures Commission (SFC). The financial regulations in Hong Kong are very different from those in Europe and the US, with more flexible trading conditions and higher trading leverage offered to most traders.
