PUNTERS planning their first plunge into the turbulent waters of Hong Kong's investment scene would do well to consult new publications released by the Securities and Futures Commission (SFC). 'We need to encourage people to invest wisely,' Deborah Glass, the SFC's senior director of investment products, said. The four booklets walk novice and not-so-novice investors through the entire investment process, from sorting out priorities, to choosing a broker. They give advice on how to monitor investment performance and how to pursue a complaint about fraud or dishonesty encountered along the way. Complaints can be reported to the SFC's hotline (2840 9333) during working hours. The securities watchdog released the new brochures on Tuesday. They are available free of charge at the SFC's office in The Landmark in Central and all 16 Consumer Council offices.
