Pointed out the differences between banking systems in Hong Kong and in Mainland, Dr. Yeung analyzed the potential opportunity for the two places to work together and achieve prosperity.


UIC is authorized as one of the exam centers for Certified Financial Management Planner (CFMP). After a general introduction to HKIB, Dr. Yeung talked about the CFMP, a professional designation conferred by HKIB to improve candidates’ understanding and knowledge of issues relating to financial planning and management. Under the mutual recognition arrangement with the China Banking Association (CBA), holders of CFMPTM Stage 1 (Hong Kong) or above only need to pass CBA’s Certification of China Banking Professional (CCBP)’s “Banking Fundamental Certificate” examination and will be awarded “ Personal Wealth Management Certificate” by CBA. Meanwhile, Chinese holders of CCBP are only required to complete the ''Banking and Financial Planning Regulations'' and pass Stage 1 of CFMPTM (Hong Kong) examination held in the Mainland in order to obtain CFMPTM Stage 1''s ''Financial Planning Certificate''. Such mutual recognition arrangement will further promote exchange of talents across the border.
