Hauck & Aufhäuser acts as an intermediary between European fund boutiques and the Asian capital market

The distribution of fund products in Hong Kong and China has so far mainly been the focus of large European and global fund providers. We are therefore all the more pleased to announce that we are the first medium-sized private label fund provider to be authorized to publicly distribute an in-house fund of our asset manager H&A Global Investment Management (HAGIM) in Hong Kong.

Our subsidiary Hauck & Aufhäuser Fund Services S.A. (HAFS) is the first capital management company to have authorized a Luxembourg mutual fund for public distribution under the Mutual Recognition of Funds (MRF) between Hong Kong and Luxembourg, which has been in force since January 2019. We owe this success to the excellent cooperation of HAFS with China Desk and to the support of Dechert LLP in Hong Kong and PwC Luxembourg.

In future, our third-party fund partners will also benefit from our distribution network in Hong Kong. In concrete terms, we support our clients in all organizational issues relating to the approval process of their fund and make our broad international distribution network available to them. The bank acts as an intermediary between the European and Asian capital markets and vice versa.

Your advantages as partner of Hauck & Aufhäuser at a glance

We support you from the registration of your fund in Hong Kong to local fund distribution

Together we plan the approval process of your funds and accompany you during this time. You benefit from our network with renowned distribution partners in Hong Kong and through selected and experienced service providers - from their selection, the coordination and reconciliation of legal documents to the connection to relevant platforms and the organization of roadshows.


As the second largest fund location worldwide, Luxembourg has excellent expertise and offers fund initiators an innovative and rapidly developing financial environment. There are already a number of local institutions (e.g. Luxembourg for Finance, ALFI fund association) that have an excellent network in Asia and are thus continuously expanding the relationship between Luxembourg as a financial centre and the Middle East. 


Our goal is to gradually expand our local sales network for institutional and retail investors. The network consisting of members of the "Fosun family" as well as external business partners of Fosun, banks and asset managers will be made available to our customers. In this way, we open up the opportunity for you to distribute your products in Hong Kong with our support. So far, only larger fund providers with their own product range are represented in this market. Hauck & Aufhäuser has excellent niche products and thus stands out from the crowd.

About the cooperation of Hauck & Aufhäuser and Fosun

In 2016, the bank entered into a partnership with the strategic investor Fosun from China and has set itself the goal of giving German business partners access to China. At the same time, the aim was at supporting Chinese clients in their German investments. For this purpose, the bank established the China Desk shortly after the acquisition by Fosun, which was responsible for the sales approval process together with HAFS at Hauck & Aufhäuser. In addition, this process was accompanied by Dechert LLP in Hong Kong and PwC Luxembourg.
