After 30 years into its role, Hong Kong’s number one financial watchdog — the Securities and Futures Commission “SFC” — continues adapting to the city’s ever-evolving financial market and emerging regulatory challenges in a bid to tackle market irregularities and preserve Hong Kong’s competitiveness as an international financial centre. This article reviews the new strategies the Commission has adopted, and the key risks it seeks to address. In recent years, we have seen a change in the SFC’s enforcement approach. Instead of covering a broad range of potential breaches, the regulator now prioritises investigations into “high impact” cases. This has been reflected in the decreasing number of the SFC’s investigations and the soaring amount of fines imposed by it. Sponsor failures : last year, the SFC imposed some record-breaking fines on sponsors of initial public offerings ” IPOs ” for their due diligence failures. Insider dealing and market manipulation : following prosecutions brought by the SFC, some senior management officers were jailed for insider dealing. In particular, each of them wrongly transferred monies away from their client accounts.

There is no question which is the most prominent planet this month. It’s certainly none other than dazzling Venus , which rules the western evening sky this month, offering spectacular views as it reaches its greatest brightness of the year. Related: Photos of Venus, the mysterious planet next door. Venus will appear dramatically close to the Pleiades during the first several evenings of April. On April 1, we can see it hovering just below this beautiful open cluster of stars, known colloquially, as “The Seven Sisters.
On the evening of April 3, Venus is just one-quarter of a degree southeast of Alcyone, the brightest star in the cluster, and one-third of a degree south of the neighboring stars Atlas and Pleione. Venus is only about three-quarters of a degree from the cluster’s center on the night before and a little over 1 degree the night after.
Venus’s glare will practically overwhelm the cluster for naked-eye observers when it is closest, but binoculars and wide-field telescopes will show both the planet and the cluster beautifully. Only once every 8 years can Venus come so near the Pleiades — and in our lifetime these conjunctions or close encounters have been getting ever closer. As Venus continues to pass a little farther north, it will actually go right through the main Pleiades stars in the years , , and
