109. The epidemic has speeded up digital transformation of the Hong Kong financial market.  On top of many Fintech start- ups, there are eight virtual banks, four virtual insurers, and a virtual asset trading platform having been authorised to operate in Hong Kong.

110. With a view to fostering the development of more novel financial products, the HKSTPC and Cyberport will collaborate with the HKMA to attract more financial, technology or research institutes to set up laboratories in Hong Kong, with a focus on such areas as regulatory technology and cyber security, where Hong Kong enjoys clearest advantages.  In addition to the Fintech Proof- of- Concept Subsidy Scheme announced in January this year, the HKMA is considering enhancing its Fintech Supervisory Sandbox by providing "through-train" vetting and funding arrangements for those promising Fintech solutions to reduce the time for the launch of innovative financial products in the market.
