The Financial Dispute Resolution Centre (FDRC) is an independent and impartial organisation administering the Financial Dispute Resolution Scheme (FDRS). Since the commencement of operation in 2012, FDRC has made every endeavor to promote its services and the merit of the use of alternative dispute resolution processes in monetary dispute settlement. Recently, FDRC is awarded “The Corporate Financial Education Leadership – Gold Award” in recognition of the achievements in enhancing the financial literacy in Hong Kong in the previous years.
The IFPHK Financial Education Leadership Awards 2019 is designed to recognise organisations and individuals’ outstanding efforts in raising the overall level of financial literacy in Hong Kong. Twelve specific assessment criteria are set out to evaluate the financial education initiatives and elaborate how the activities influence the financial literacy level among Hong Kong citizens. Gold Award is given to a non-profit entity that has achieved three or more criteria.
