Financial Secretary Paul Chan and Secretary for Financial Services & the Treasury Christopher Hui today expressed deep sorrow over the passing of former Hong Kong Exchanges & Clearing (HKEX) Chief Executive Paul Chow and extended their condolences to his family.

Mr Chow served as the Chief Executive of the Stock Exchange of Hong Kong as well as HKEX, and was Chairman of the Board of Directors at Cyberport Management Company.

The Financial Secretary noted that Mr Chow had made substantial contributions to the development of financial services and innovation and technology in Hong Kong.

“He was sincere and warm-hearted, and devoted himself to serving the community, having served in various professional and advisory bodies, courts/councils of universities and charitable organisations. He was awarded a Gold Bauhinia Star in 2010 by the Government.”

While Mr Hui said Mr Chow was committed to enhancing HKEX’s strengths, making Hong Kong one of the global premier financial and investment centres. Having been appointed to the Securities & Futures Commission’s Advisory Committee, he also made significant contributions to the development of the local financial sector.

“During the time when I worked at HKEX, I had the privilege of witnessing Mr Chow’s outstanding and pragmatic leadership and management skills, which are still beneficial to me today. I will always miss him,” the treasury chief added.
