A City’s Mission in FinTech




Hong Kong is one of the world’s leading hubs when it comes to FinTech innovation and opportunities, and a major driver of the city’s FinTech initiatives is InvestHK, the department under the Hong Kong Government responsible for attracting foreign direct investment. On the backdrop of Hong Kong FinTech Week 2021, we caught up with King Leung, Head of FinTech at InvestHK, as he details InvestHK’s mission to foster a vibrant FinTech ecosystem and community in Hong Kong and the Greater Bay Area. An engineer turned entrepreneur, King also shares why start-ups and scale-ups should come to Hong Kong and the support services and schemes his department offers.


As the Head of FinTech at InvestHK, King has the privilege of working closely with major financial service institutions, FinTech companies, accelerators, innovation labs, investors, regulators and universities. Recognised for his industry domain experience, King has been invited to serve in leadership roles at the FinTech Association of Hong Kong, The Marketing Society Asia and the Asia America Multi-technology Association. Prior to his FinTech immersion, King’s tech entrepreneurial career included his role as angel investor in start-ups involving AI, Big Data and InsurTech.
