Securities regulators in Beijing and Hong Kong introduced the mutual recognition of funds (MRF) scheme on May 22 last year, when the mainland stock market was still booming.

The programme, which allows fund management companies in both markets to distribute their products across the border, went live on July 1. 

AsianInvestor and Thomson Reuters gathered some MRF pioneers to discuss the scheme in a webcast, which was broadcast on February 17. Subsequently we carried out a series of individual video interviews with the webcast participants.

In today's video Rosita Lee, head of investment products and advisory at Hang Seng Bank, discusses how her firm is approaching the challenge of educating mainland investors and what she would view as success when it comes to the MRF business, among other things.

The other interviewees are Timothy Tse, chief executive of Hong Kong-based Value Partners, whose interview can be viewed here, and Eleanor Wan, CEO of Hong Kong's BEA Union Investments, whose interview will appear soon on
