Brokers against Occupy Central
(04-28 16:59)

Eight groups representing more than 20,000 financial analysts and brokers have placed full-page advertisements in local newspapers, stating their opposition to the planned "Occupy Central" protests.
They say the pro-democracy campaign will bring "a hundred harms and zero benefits" to the territory, and warned that investors may pull their money out of Hong Kong should the protests go ahead later this year.
The latest advertisement highlights the divide in the local business community over political reform.
Last week, hedge fund manager Edward Chin Chi-kin published an open letter to President Xi Jinping calling for genuine universal suffrage. --RTHK
