Hong Kong 2019
November 2019 saw TNF return to Hong Kong - this time with the support of HKEX as our Host Partners. We were delighted to bring the Asian post-trade community together again, and despite the sudden change in tactics of the protestors to weekday disturbance, we had over a 90% turnout rate on Day One: a testament to the resilience of this tight-knit community. Well over 100 network managers, direct custody providers, CSDs and FinTech innovators at Asia’s essential industry gathering took part with great dialogue and networking interaction. Unfortunately we were unable to proceed with Day Two owing to security concerns and severe travel disruption. We wish the HK community the best for its future path and hope a political resolution can be found.
Looking ahead we will be back in Asia in 2020 in Singapore on November 16/17 - continuing to curate an essential dialogue of how best to face the future together, by focussing on the key areas of growth, and also challenges, that the market faces.
