Work from home orders have resulted in operational difficulties at firms worldwide. In the financial sector, this has exacerbated persistent challenges in the governance and supervision of conduct risk, helping to keep corporate governance and risk management reform high on the agenda across Asia. Leaders and regulators are looking to new technologies to boost operational resiliency during these challenging times — and into the future.

To explore these trends, and project what they may imply in the near term future, the Asia Society Hong Kong Center (ASHK) and US regtech pioneer Starling will lead an online discussion on January 14th (9am Hong Kong local time).  Attendance for the hour-long session via Zoom, YouTube and Facebook is free of charge.  For a small fee, participants may opt to join an additional 30 minutes of Q&A with the panelists.  (Note: this private session is via Zoom only)

Ronnie C. Chan, Chairman of ASHK, will deliver the Opening Remarks and Starling Founder & CEO Stephen Scott will moderate a panel discussion with:

  • Gary Cohn, Vice Chairman of IBM, former Director of the US National Economic Council, and past President/COO at Goldman Sachs
  • Charles Li, past-CEO and Senior Advisor to the Board at Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Limited (HKEX)
  • Motonobu Matsuo, Secretary General of the Japan Securities & Exchange Surveillance Commission, and 
  • Loretta Yuen, Group General Counsel & Executive Vice-President of OCBC Bank
