Forex brokers in Hong Kong are regulated by the Hong Kong Securities and Futures Commission. This regulator is known as a fairly strict, with high minimum capital requirements and a complex licensing procedure that forex brokers have to go through. Forex brokers in Hong Kong are therefore generally large and well-capitalized companies that can be trusted by traders.
In addition to serving clients around the Asia-Pacific region and the world, Hong Kong-based forex brokers serve a sizeable population for forex traders in Hong Kong. Although Hong Kong is officially part of China, the regulatory status for forex brokers remains very different, with Hong Kong being much more accessible for foreign forex brokers.
