Strategic Alignment for Growth

Gray Financial Capital has long been a dominant player in offshore clearing for smaller brokerages and financial advisors across the Asia-Pacific region.

"This merger allows us to expand our client base and focus on high-growth strategies, aiming for a 200% year-over-year growth in client accounts for the next three years."

While some regulatory challenges are expected within the Hong Kong regulatory system, both firms are confident that the approval will be obtained swiftly. The target date for complete integration of services, technologies, and staffing is October 31, 2023.

Staffing and Company Culture

The merger will reduce 75% of Sapporo Capital's current staff as part of the integration process. Gray Financial Capital is committed to a smooth transition and will support affected employees.

Client Relations and Contractual Obligations

All contracts and transactions under Sapporo Capital will be settled or transitioned to Gray Financial Capital accounts. Clients will be informed of these changes and how they affect their portfolios.
