According to SFC’s Chief Executive Officer Ashley Alder in a recent statement on the appointment, “Ms. Leung brings to the SFC a wealth of experience and knowledge. I look forward to working closely with her in her new role heading the Investment Products Division and as a member of our Board.”
“I would also like to thank Alexa for her crucial contribution to the development of the SFC and the financial services industry over the years, and in particular her work on Mainland projects which enabled Hong Kong to embed its role as a gateway connecting China to the rest of the world. On behalf of our colleagues, I wish her a very happy retirement,” Mr. Alder added.
