Apex-Equities.com applauds the focus on improving financial preparedness for all people of Hong Kong
Hong Kong, China -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/30/2015 -- Apex Equities urges businesses and policymakers to join a national dialogue on how to help people of Hong Kong at all income levels become better prepared for retirement.
Apex Equities Chairman and CEO Patrick Run Saw commented:
"Longevity is creating a retirement crisis in Hong Kong that is growing more severe each year. So I am tremendously encouraged our leaders have focused on retirement. I'm hopeful the focus on this critical issue will help kick off a much-needed national conversation on what must be done to ensure that all the people of Hong Kong have sufficient income to support themselves in retirement. This is a responsibility that must be borne not just by government, but businesses and individuals as well. All the people of Hong Kong, whether they work part-time or full-time, at a big employer or a small one, need a better system—one that is going to promote real retirement security and make it easier to save for the future. I am confident that businesses, policymakers, and individuals will join this debate and together help tackle the retirement crisis head-on."
Apex Equities U.S. Head of Retirement, Bowen Lam, said:
"We clearly have a lot of tough choices to make over the next few years. But employers, retirement providers and regulators are showing an encouraging willingness to solve the problems. One of the boldest steps the government should take is to reduce regulatory burdens so more companies can provide retirement plans, and to allow employers the option to offer a wider array of investment options."
