Welcome !

Welcome to the Financial Dispute Resolution Centre (FDRC) website.  

We administer an accessible, efficient and transparent Financial Dispute Resolution Scheme (FDRS) whereby independent and impartial mediators and arbitrators will provide mediation and arbitration services to financial institutions and their individual customers in Hong Kong. With enhanced public awareness of the benefits of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) processes such as mediation and arbitration, we are certain that Hong Kong would continue to excel in its status as an international financial centre.

“Mediation First, Arbitration Next”.

We operate as a non-profit making organisation and are governed by a Board of Directors. Our FDRS will facilitate individuals and sole proprietors resolve financial disputes with their financial institutions amicably by way of “mediation first and arbitration next”. If mediation does not result in settlement, claimants may decide to go to arbitration.
