About Us

Welcome to the Asia Pacific Takeovers Regulators Forum

The Asia Pacific Takeovers Regulators Forum was formed in May 2012 and is principally designed:

i. for member regulators to facilitate the exchange of ideas and views relating to takeovers and related regulatory matters; and
ii. to provide the public with access to information about takeovers regulations of member countries and related news.

Our members are Takeovers Regulators in the Asia Pacific region. The Forum is currently jointly hosted by the Securities and Future Commission of Hong Kong and the Securities Commission of Malaysia.

Our objectives are that through the exchange of ideas and views members will be able to:
● Promote and develop the transparent and fair conduct of takeovers activities in their own markets;
● Learn from the experience of others to assist in the development of regulations in their countries;
● Protect the public in their countries against malpractice in takeovers.
