The Securities and Futures Commission (SFC) today launched a two-month consultation on proposed enhancements to the Investor Compensation Regime.

Key proposals include increasing the compensation limit from $150,000 to $500,000 per investor per default and covering northbound trading under Mainland-Hong Kong Stock Connect.

In addition, the SFC proposes to raise the trigger levels for suspending and reinstating the Investor Compensation Fund levies from $1.4 billion to $3 billion and from $1 billion to $2 billion respectively. This will not affect the levy suspension currently in place.

Another proposal would empower the SFC to make interim compensation payments in exceptional circumstances where delays may raise or increase systemic concerns.
