Hang Seng Bank has a long, well-regarded history of listening to their customers and recognising the changing needs of the millennials and other young generations early on. The Bank offers digital banking approaches that match the habits of the younger generations. These included innovative services like starting your fund investment with just HKD 1 via SimplyFund, being the first bank in the city to adopt Near Field Communication (NFC) technology that allows a mobile phone connecting with an ATM for cash withdrawals and the first in the market to offer a Mobile Cheque Deposit service. In addition, the Bank enabled young customers to access financial education information and resources. As a result of these insightful approaches, the number of younger customers opening Preferred Banking accounts has increased by over 20% year-on-year.
Neo Yau, the Creative Director of the "Trial & Error" said, 'This is our first attempt to produce a TV commercial since we have started our channel more than a year ago. It has been a great pleasure to take up the role of Preferred Banking's ambassadors together with Hui Yin and So Chi Ho. After dressing up in a classic suit and tie, we already feel we have become a more mature person.' Yau also mentioned that the creative idea was that the three of them were travelling between classic movies and their channel's movies, to encourage the young audience to take their first steps to activate "Trial mode*" into financial management through the Hang Seng Bank services.

Important Risk Warnings
· Investors should note that investment involves risks. The prices of securities fluctuate, sometimes dramatically. The price of a security may move up or down, and may become valueless. It is as likely that losses will be incurred rather than profit made as a result of buying and selling securities.
· Investors should note that investing in different Renminbi-denominated securities and products involves different risks (including but are not limited to currency risk, exchange rate risk, credit risk of issuer / counterparty, interest rate risk, liquidity risk (where appropriate)). The key risks of investing in A-shares of Stock Connect Northbound Trading include:
  • Transactions under the Northbound or Southbound Trading of Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect / Shenzhen-Hong Kong Stock Connect will not be covered by the Investor Compensation Fund in Hong Kong.
  • Once the respective quota is used up, trading will be affected or will be suspended.
  • Stock Connect Northbound Trading will only operate on days when both markets are open for trading and when banks in both markets are open on the corresponding settlement days. Investors should take note of the days the Stock Connect Northbound Trading is open for business and decide according to their own risk tolerance whether or not to take on the risk of price fluctuations in securities during the time when Stock Connect Northbound Trading is not trading.
  • When some stocks are recalled from the scope of eligible stocks for trading via Stock Connect Northbound Trading, the stocks can only be sold but NOT bought.
  • Investors will be exposed to currency risk if conversion of the local currency into RMB is required.

· Foreign securities carry additional risks not generally associated with securities in the domestic market. The value or income (if any) of foreign securities may be more volatile and could be adversely affected by changes in many factors. Client assets received or held by the licensed or registered person outside Hong Kong are subject to the applicable laws and regulations of the relevant overseas jurisdiction which may be different from the Securities and Futures Ordinance (Cap.571) and the rules made thereunder. Consequently, such client assets may not enjoy the same protection as that conferred on client assets received or held in Hong Kong
