  • The Risks of a long-term office lease in Hong Kong

    December 2015 | Wilma Wu

    Hong Kong, being a global business hub, has all kinds of new enterprises emerging in every corner of the country. Once you have decided to start your business in Hong Kong, at some point, getting the right office solution for your needs will become necessary. For many companies that focus on the customer, taking the correct lease terms for an office space is a matter of success and failure. Many startups in Hong Kong sign a long-term lease agreement, and then find out that they are into a bad deal. Not only they pay a higher rent for the entire lease term, but the services they get are also compromised.

  • A business incubator

    August 2015 | The Standard

    Some economists have voiced concerns that, given China's increasing direct connections with the Western world, Hong Kong may be losing its unique status as the springboard into the Mainland. But Wilma Wu, Servcorp general manager - Hong Kong, points out that we have the distinct advantage of a well- established infrastructure, especially in finance and banking, as well as an independent judiciary that guarantees fair play and legal protection.

     "The transparency and dependability of the system means that there are no nasty surprises for businessmen operating in Hong Kong," she adds. "That's what keeps them coming."

  • Artistic endeavour

    May 2015 | SCMP

    Artists in Hong Kong generally set up studios in affordable districts such as Fo Tan, Kwun Tong and Kowloon Bay, or even Aberdeen and Tsuen Wan - making Justin Y probably the only artist who boasts an address at Two IFC. He saw the advantages of being based in a Servcorp serviced office there because he comes from an advertising/marketing background and is good at sales.

    "I didn't start out thinking arts would be my future," he says. Originally from Malaysia, he attended school in Singapore and worked in advertising there. By the late 1990s, he was based in Beijing and, in the early 2000s, moved to Hong Kong. In 2009, he set up his own business consulting for lifestyle products.

    April 2015 | SCMP

    While the popularity of services offices has been growing exponentially, awareness of the advantages of virtual offices hasn't caught up with this development.

    "Not that many people know what a virtual office is and how it can help grow the business," says Simon Smith, vice-president, virtual offices at Servcorp. "We have data to suggest that our [virtual office] clients' businesses are more likely to succeed than similar businesses." Smith is in Hong Kong from the Sydney head office, working on how to take the serviced office concept to the next level.
