Hong Kong’s financial regulator, the Securities and Futures Commission (SFC), today updated its Alert List with a further unlicensed brokerage which was brought to its attention.
The SFC’s Alert List features the names of businesses that are unlicensed in Hong Kong and which are believed to have targeted Hong Kong investors or made claims to be associated with Hong Kong.
Rosan World Investment is the latest brokerage to be included on the SFC’s warning list under the category of Unlicensed Entities, and follows a further warning issued just yesterday on Fox Capital Partners, also added as an unlicensed entity, as reported by Finance Magnates.

In its statement issued today, the SFC warned that unlicenced entities often use names similar to legitimate companies to confuse investors.
Rosan World Investments operates online via the url http://www.hkrongxing.com/ and describes itself as a financial futures investment company offering stock index and commodity futures services.
The firm claims to be located at Room 171 817 F Yau Building, 181 Johnston Road, Wan Chai, Hong Kong but according to the SFC, this address is invalid.
Hong Kong’s financial watchdog helps inform investors by drawing attention to illicit operations and unregulated entities that market participants should abstain from doing business with.
