On 20 February 2024, the Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) issued the โ€œGuidance on Expected Standards on Provision of Custodial Services for Digital Assets by Authorized Institutionsโ€ to all authorized institutions which sets out the expected standards for storing the digital assets of authorized institutionsโ€™ clients with reference to international standards and practices. Authorized institutions are required to apply the standards of the Guidance when safeguarding digital assets, which include virtual assets, tokenised securities, or other tokenised assets.
