iFinHealth and OCBC Bank (Hong Kong) Limited (“OCBC Hong Kong”) has collaborated on the innovative project which represents a significant milestone in the advancement of financial technology (FinTech) and the application in portfolio management in the industry. The project, concluded in December 2023, upholds Hong Kong Monetary Authority’s (HKMA) ‘FinTech 2025’ Strategy fostering FinTech adoption in Hong Kong, with the support of Hong Kong Cyberport.

 

Under the collaboration, we appreciated the effort of OCBC Hong Kong sharing insights and acted as an advisor to provide feedback on features, functionalities and interface of iFinHealth’s portfolio management system. This revolutionises the process of conducting financial dynamic projections and enabling real-time adjustments to assumptions which greatly facilitates decision making. This helps enhance the stress testing and innovative capabilities of the system significantly.

 

Mr Johnny Wei, Head of Wholesale Banking of OCBC Hong Kong, said, “OCBC, as a digital-centric bank, focused on redefining the banking experience for our clients continues to innovate our business capabilities to support the transformative needs of our clients and their businesses. Harnessing OCBC’s strong banking expertise and rich experience in managing dynamic business portfolios across our ASEAN-Greater China regional network, we strive to foster more fruitful collaborations with FinTech start-ups like iFinHealth. Through exploring the use of new data-driven technologies, I am confident that we would gain unprecedented insights to optimise our business strategies, and ultimately drive better outcomes for our clients.”

 

Mr. William Lam, Founder and CEO of iFinHealth said, “We are thrilled to partner with OCBC Hong Kong on this innovative project. We aim to revolutionize Portfolio Management by incorporating AI-empowered financial professionals to achieve better results. The successful launch of Portfolio Management represents a significant milestone for iFinHealth, as it demonstrates our ability to provide end-to-end automation solutions, encompassing individual company and peer analysis, as well as entire portfolio analysis in a single process. By leveraging AI technology, iFinHealth aims to enhance portfolio management by introducing additional features and functionalities. These advancements could improve the decision-making process and generate superior outcomes for clients. It also recognizes the value of integrating AI into financial services and we are committed to delivering innovative solutions in the industry.”

 

Mr. Victor Yim, Head of FinTech at Hong Kong Cyberport, said, “We are pleased to witness the successful enablement of iFinHealth's portfolio management solution by OCBC Hong Kong. As part of the FinTech Supervisory Sandbox 3.1 (FSS 3.1) Pilot, this partnership has enabled banks to streamline their workflows and enhance efficiency and capabilities, thereby offering services that meet the evolving needs of customers. As the FinTech hub and the largest FinTech community in Hong Kong, Cyberport will continue to collaborate with regulators and stakeholders to foster the digital transformation of the finance industry, contributing to the development of Hong Kong as an international centre for green technology and finance.”

 

The success of this collaboration has demonstrated the immense potential across industries in the field of portfolio management. The application of the portfolio management technology benefits a diverse range of users, including banks and insurance companies. By leveraging this technology, users can enhance their capabilities with flexibility, data-driven decision-making and proactive risk management. Ultimately, this can help provide better outcomes for the wider population.

 

Supported by Cyberport on the FinTech adaptation in our Portfolio Management System


The project is supported by the FSS 3.1 Pilot launched by Hong Kong Cyberport in collaboration with the HKMA. FSS 3.1 Pilot aims to encourage FinTech companies to partner with banks to promote commercialisation and wider adoption of the FinTech projects. It enhances the partnership between banks and start-ups, as well as facilitates the digital transformation in banking sector. Ultimately, the pilot helps upgrade the financial industry and further strengthen the city’s leading position as an international financial centre. FSS 3.1 Pilot provides development-stage funding support for FinTech projects that were approved and completed under Proof-of-Concept Subsidy Scheme (PoC 2021), which fit into the HKMA’s regulatory mandate. The projects must be related to Cybersecurity, Regtech or Risk Management in scope, and have to address a practical issue or pain point faced by the banking industry with no prior use case in the market.
