Hong Kong is the leading international financial centre of the world and has a highly developed financial system. Through an analysis of the breadth, depth and efficiency of 62 leading financial systems and capital markets in the world carried out by the '2012 Financial Development Report', Hong Kong's financial sector development index took the lead two years in a row with a score of 5.31 points (out of the total of 7), with the U.S. and the U.K. taking the second and third spots respectively. Hong Kong became the first Asian financial centre to come out on top in the history of the said report.
Since 2009, Hong Kong has maintained its financial stability and economic development successfully in the face of the impact of the financial crisis. It has been ranked fourth In the Dow Jones International Financial Centres Development Index for two consecutive years, and its consolidated new stocks amount ranked number one in the world. In 2010, international credit rating agency Standard and Poor's adjusted the rating of Hong Kong's long-term foreign and local currency sovereignty from AA+ to AAA and rated its outlook as 'stable'. This shows that the international society has sufficiently recognised Hong Kong's stable economic foundation and the ability of its financial system to withstand impacts. Hong Kong's economic and financial developments present a bright spot against a backdrop of continued poor performances.
The various honours above are adequate recognitions of Hong Kong's excellent financial ecology. This has also provided a basis of reference for and the development of mainland China's financial sector.
