DUBAI: The Dubai Financial Services Authority (DFSA) has signed two cooperation agreements with Hong Kong (HK) to enhance collaboration in financial technology (FinTech) innovation.

The DFSA signed bilateral agreements with Hong Kong’s Insurance Authority (IA) and the Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA). Under the terms of each agreement, the authorities will cooperate on information sharing and referrals of innovative businesses. The agreement with the HKMA extends to collaborating on joint innovation projects.

Ian Johnston, Chief Executive of the DFSA, said, “Our Agreement with the authorities in Hong Kong is indicative of the importance we place on maintaining a close relationship with Hong Kong’s financial services regulators. The signing of these agreements in FinTech is a natural next step to the collaboration we have in regulating traditional financial services.”

The agreements follow the signing of a similar cooperation agreement between the DFSA and Hong Kong’s Securities and Futures Commission in August. It means that the DFSA now has agreements in place with all three financial counterparts in the Special Administrative Region.

John Leung, Chief Executive Officer of the IA, said, “The IA takes proactive steps in strengthening collaboration with other jurisdictions in FinTech development. The agreement with DFSA signifies closer cooperation between the two authorities in fostering and creating business opportunities for FinTech firms on a global reach.
