Finance Internship in Hong Kong

When you want the best of learning, you need to go to the best of teacher. This principle very well applies to a finance internship as well.


To get the best learning experience from the internship, you need to put careful thought into where you pursue it from.


You will not find a better alternative than Hong Kong, which has beaten all odds over the years to become a top-ranking global financial listing.


Let’s look into some fascinating points that make a Hong Kong internship so right for a career in finance:


  • Hong Kong ranks among the top five international financial hubs in the world. This is partly because of its status as one of the most free market economies of the world. The well-structured and supervisory judicial and legal policies further bolster Hong Kong’s position as a premier financial center.
  • The finance industry plays a very important role in Hong Kong’s economy and is a major contributor in the overall GDP.
  • Hong Kong specializes in sectors like asset management, banking, stock trading, and insurance. In fact, Hong Kong stock exchange is the world’s sixth largest, and more than 70 of the world’s top 100 banking institutions have operations in Hong Kong.
  • The financial markets and institutions of Hong Kong serve local as well as foreign clients through their extensive range of offerings.
  • Because of its world-class infrastructure, welcoming business environment and prominence in South-East Asia region, Hong Kong’s finance industry is set for more growth in the coming years.
  • FinTech (Financial Technology) is beginning to take concrete shape in Hong Kong. This is bringing about positive changes in the way financial service providers operate, a true reflection of the technology changes that are doing the rounds in the global finance arena.
