  • Initial Public Offering (IPO): include how to read prospectus and the new sponsor regime, as well as the risks of subscribing IPO through margin financing.
  • Funds: include points to note about buying and selling funds, the Mainland capital gain tax issue on renminbi funds and how to read the materials on funds' dividend distribution.
  • Online investment: include crowd-funding and the risks associated with virtual commodities such as bitcoins.
  • Up-to-date macroeconomic environment.
  • Other financial products: include exchange-traded funds (ETFs), bonds and investment-linked assurance schemes (ILAS).

The 12 episodes of radio interviews are currently broadcast on RTHK One from 7 May until late July 2014.
