The Finance Forum invites BritCham/CBBC members from the finance sector to share expertise, experience and common concerns about the China market. It offers members the opportunity to meet on a regular basis to discuss policy, regulatory and industry developments and issues from different perspectives, ranging from macroeconomics to specific sector-focused topics.

The objectives of the forum are: to provide a platform for information sharing on Chinese banking, insurance, fund management, private equity, listing, accounting and taxation for forum members through online library access, newsletters, roundtable discussions and seminars, featuring speakers from both British and Chinese institutions; to promote the strength of the UK financial services sector and provide a point of liaison with the Chinese authorities regarding financial services where the UK’s opinion could be proffered on proposed market developments; to promote exchanges with Chinese stakeholders including regulators, central and local governments and practitioners; to support the British Embassy and UKTI with senior-level financial services focused official visits and business delegations; to advise British financial services newcomers on regulatory and practical market entry issues.
