Mayer Brown Legal Update
In Pacific Sun Advisors Limited & Anor v. Securities and Futures Commission (FACC 11/2014), the Court of Final Appeal (CFA) upheld an appeal by the defendants, Pacific Sun Advisors Limited and its director, Andrew Pieter Mantel, against their conviction in the Magistrates’ Court in relation to certain advertisements for a collective investment scheme (CIS) intended for professional investors that were not authorised by the SFC under Section 103(1) of the Securities and Futures Ordinance (SFO). Apart from clarifying the construction of the professional investors exemption under Section 103(3)(k), the case is a useful reminder to insurers of investment advisers of the nature of enforcement actions that might be brought against their insureds in Hong Kong.
