Presenter's Profile:
Mr. Stephen Suen

Stephen Suen, formerly a Director of Enforcement of The Securities and Futures Commission (SFC), is now a practicing barrister-at-law specializing in the following areas of litigation and advisory work:

  • Contraventions of Securities and Futures Ordinance (SFO), Takeovers Code, Listing Rules, Code of Conduct for Persons Licensed by or Registered with the SFC
  • Market misconduct e.g. market manipulation, insider dealing, disclosure of false/misleading information
  • White collar crimes, money laundering, fraud

During the 33 years from 1983 to 2017, Mr. Suen has four rewarding yet exciting professional careers in both public and private sectors.  Mr. Suen started his first career as a Police Inspector with Royal Hong Kong Police Force in 1983.  During the seven years with the Police force (the last three years with Commercial Crime Bureau (CCB)), Mr. Suen participated in a number of high profile and complex commercial crime cases.  These cases earned him commendations from the Police and High Court Judge.

In 1989, Mr. Suen joined the newly set up SFC to enforce securities and futures laws.  In 1999 Mr. Suen was promoted to Director of Enforcement.  He was responsible for leading and supervising teams of accountants and lawyers in the investigation and prosecution of insider dealing, market manipulation, intermediaries' misconduct, and referral of fraud and corruption cases to CCB and ICAC respectively.

In year 2000 Mr. Suen was appointed by the then Acting Financial Secretary of HKSAR (FS) as an Inspector to investigate and report on the ownership of shares in Oxford Properties & Finance Limited, a listed company on the Stock Exchange of Hong Kong (SEHK).  After meticulous investigation work and overseas enquiries, an Inspection Report setting out the findings of the Inspection and recommendations was submitted by the Inspector to the FS who approved publication of the Inspection Report.  The Inspection Report can be accessed via the website of the Financial Services and Treasury Bureau (FSTB) of the Government of HKSAR.

In 2007 Mr. Suen joined a Hong Kong listed company as its executive director and deputy managing director.  Mr. Suen was also a Responsible Officer (RO) of four licensed corporations in the listed company.  He was responsible for the supervision of seven different types of regulated activities (RA).  These RA included dealing and advising in both securities and futures contracts, margin financing, corporate finance and assets management.

Mr. Suen has accumulated altogether 33 years of solid and practical experience and knowledge in the enforcement of SFO and commercial crime investigations.  Mr. Suen's specialties include advising on investigation and prosecution vis-a-vis insider dealing, market manipulation, intermediaries' disciplinary proceedings, Code of Conduct, Listing Rules, Takeovers Code and commercial crimes.

Mr. Suen's professional qualifications include Postgraduate Certificate in Laws (PCLL), Juris Doctor, Master in Accountancy, and Bachelor of Social Science (Economics).  Mr. Suen is a member of Hong Kong Bar Association, Hong Kong Institute of Certificate Public Accountants and Hong Kong Securities and Investment Institute.

Course Outline:

This CPD seminar will focus on major SFC cases to draw lessons on how to effectively prevent and avoid market misconduct in the present highly competitive but 'zero' tolerance enforcement environment.  Practical tips and advice will be offered to entrepreneurs, company directors, shareholders, fund managers, traders, speculators and investors (retailed or professional) and their advisers including solicitors and accountants.

In this seminar Mr. Suen will apply his expertise and experience gained over the past 30 years to dissect major SFC cases with a view to providing the participants with a firm grasp of the central issues and applicable law in these cases.  More importantly, Mr. Suen will share invaluable lessons and insights from these cases with the participants so that they can relate to and apply when they face similar situations.

These cases include:

  • International City Holdings (ICH) - Why KS Li was culpable of insider dealing of a high degree? What lessons can be learnt from the case?
  • Peregrine - What went wrong? Causes of the failures and lessons for the senior management of a large financial services conglomerate.
