Overview

Accessing unique private market investment opportunities continues to be a key area of focus for many of Hong Kong’s and Asia’s largest single and multi-family offices. Israel is second to Silicon Valley in terms of innovation, and is recognized globally, as a leading center and ecosystem for high tech innovation. In Israel this year, we’ve seen unprecedented growth with 24 new unicorns, 2 times the number in China.

In conjunction with the Financial Services Development Council (FSDC), Invest Hong Kong (InvestHK), and Consulate General of Israel in Hong Kong & Macau, we are excited to launch the Hong Kong-Israel (HKI) Collaboration Forum.

You are exclusively invited to join a launch event to understand the nation’s growth potential and how it can support your family’s investment objectives. Here are the event details:
