The cross-boundary Wealth Management Connect scheme will expand eligibility to more Greater Bay Area (GBA) residents, expand its range of investment products and raise its investment limits for individuals, among other changes, in a bid to accelerate adoption.The number of participating institutions will also expand to include eligible securities firms, allowing such lenders to distribute investment products and provide relevant services to southbound and northbound individual investors, the Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) said in announcing enhancements to the scheme on Thursday.

“We welcome the introduction of the enhancement initiatives and are developing implementation details to put the initiatives into action at full speed,” said Eddie Yue, the CEO of the HKMA.

The new measures will “further facilitate cross-boundary investment of Greater Bay Area residents and the development of Hong Kong’s financial industry”, he added.

The expansion of eligible southbound and northbound products aims to better meet GBA residents’ demands for diversified investments, the HKMA said. The scheme will also get further promotion to acquaint GBA residents with its participating financial institutions and their services.
