Leading international law firm Clifford Chance is pleased to announce the re-appointment of partner Mark Shipman to the Hong Kong Government's Financial Services Development Council (FSDC) New Business Committee as a member for a two-year term.

Mark heads the firm's Global Funds and Investment Management sector and co-heads the Asia Pacific Financial Services Regulatory Group. He was a committee member of the FSDC from 2013 to 2019.

Mark commented, "I am absolutely thrilled to be re-appointed as a FSDC committee member and, along with my fellow committee members, help to further promote Hong Kong's position as an international financial hub. I've been lucky to have lived and worked in Hong Kong for over 20 years, and I look forward to continuing to contribute my expertise and experience gained in financial and regulatory markets across Asia Pacific and the rest of the world."

The FSDC was established in 2013 by the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government as a high-level, cross-sectoral advisory body to engage the industry in formulating proposals to promote the further development of the financial services industry of Hong Kong.

Moving forward, the FSDC will continue to enhance its capabilities in performing its key functions of policy research, market promotion and talent development, engaging stakeholders across various financial sectors and driving the delivery of messages on key growth areas of the industry such as family office, ESG and green finance, FinTech as well as connectivity with mainland China and the rest of the world.

Further information on the appointment of members to committees can be accessed via the FSDC press release.
