各位香港市民:

我們是一班持有特許金融分析師(CFA)資格認證,並任職於各大銀行、資產管理、投資公司等金融機構的業界從業員。

作為特許金融分析師協會(CFA Institute)的一份子,我等致力維護誠信和道德標準。我們深信這套專業操守與日常生活上每一個環節密不可分。

過去兩個月來,香港警方於多宗反對《逃犯條例》修訂事件中對示威者使用過分武力。相反,對於 721 元朗暴徒襲擊事件卻袖手旁觀。這套雙重標準實有違專業道德,對社會的破壞遠比逃犯條例對香港的影響深遠。

我們在此強烈要求香港特區政府回應民間五大訴求,包括:

1. 全面撤回逃犯條例修訂
2. 撤回「暴動」定性
3. 馬上停止對反送中抗爭者的政治檢控
4. 成立由資深法官領導的獨立調查委員會,追究濫用武力及違規的警務人員
5. 落實真普選 投資策略在於權衡交易風險及回報的時機。

我們相信現在就是最好的時機與香港人同行,建設更美好的香港。我們促請香港以至全球各地擁有特許金融分析師(CFA)資格認證的人士向各界表達香港人對公義的追求。 只要各界攜手合作,我們不僅可以為香港帶來更好的經濟環境,更可鞏固香港自由及法治的基石,讓香港的繁榮延續下去。

一群熱愛香港並持有特許金融分析師(CFA)資格認證的市民敬上

To the Hong Kong Community,

We are a group of CFA Charterholders working in financial institutions in Hong Kong including banks, asset managers and investment firms. 

As members of the CFA Institute, we strive to uphold the integrity and ethical standards of our profession. We firmly believe this standard does not only apply to the profession, but also to every detail of our daily lives.

Over the past two months, we have witnessed incidents around the controversial extradition bill that has become increasingly infuriating. In multiple incidents the Hong Kong Police Force has exerted excessive violence against protestors. In Yuen Long, their blind-eye towards attacks on innocent civilians by thugs on 21 July, their convoluted explanation as well as inaction afterwards can be described as unethical at best and sinister at worst. We believe that the adverse impact to Hong Kong due to the double standard employed is way beyond that of the Bill.

Our professional responsibility obliges us to speak up and appeal to the HKSAR government. We strongly request that you respond to the demands of Hong Kong people, which include: 

1.      Withdraw the extradition bill completely 
2.      Retract the characterisation of “Riot” of all protests 
3.      Drop all political prosecution and persecution to the protestors 
4.      Set up an Independent Commission of Inquiry led by a senior judge to investigate the excessive use of force by police against protestors
5.      Layout of a detailed plan for genuine universal suffrage in Hong Kong 

Investment is all about timing the trade-off between risks and returns. We believe the same goes for HKSAR government that it should respond to our anger and demands amid heightened risk. There is no better timing than now to stand together with Hong Kongers and strive for a better future of our beloved city. We also urge all CFA Institute members locally and globally to support the people of Hong Kong in the pursuance of justice by spreading this message to your community. 

By joining our hands together, not only can we bring a brighter financial future, but also justice and freedom to the ultimate benefit of the society. 

Yours faithfully
A group of CFA Charterholders who love Hong Kong
