Hong Kong steering group launches sustainable finance internship

The programme aims to encourage students to make a career in the field.

The Green and Sustainable Finance Cross-Agency Steering Group has launched the Sustainable Finance Internship Initiative, which aims to create more internship opportunities in Hong Kong for students, as part of a collaborative effort to build capability for the industry.

The initiative offers students an opportunity to gain practical hands-on experience in sustainable finance, to deepen their understanding of this sector and related career prospects in hopes of inspiring them to specialise in this field.

To facilitate access to sustainable finance internships, postings will be centralised at the internship repository of the Centre for Green and Sustainable Finance.  The Hong Kong Monetary Authority, the Securities and Futures Commission, the Insurance Authority and the Mandatory Provident Fund Schemes Authority are encouraging their respective constituents to join the Initiative.  Steering Group agencies will also soon commence hiring interns to support their own policy and market development work in sustainable finance.

Established in May 2020, the Steering Group is co-chaired by the Hong Kong Monetary Authority and the Securities and Futures Commission.  Members include the Environment and Ecology Bureau, the Financial Services and the Treasury Bureau, the Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Limited, the Insurance Authority and the Mandatory Provident Fund Schemes Authority.
