How do I create an Endowus account? (HK)

Creating an account is easy and can be done entirely online in just a few minutes.

Step 1: Create an account here. There are no fees for opening an account. You will be asked to provide some personal information to complete your onboarding.

Step 2: Complete the risk profile assessment. This is to ensure that we can offer you the most suitable investment solutions on our platform for your risk profile.

Step 3: Upload documents (i.e HKID, passport) to verify your identity. 

Step 4: Complete identity verification by making one single initial deposit of at least HK$10,000 from a Hong Kong bank account in your name (single name account only). This is required as per the Securities and Futures Commission (SFC) regulations. There are no lock-ups on our platform and you can withdraw the funds any time after onboarding.

Note: As part of our Anti-Money Laundering/Combating the Financing of Terrorism (AML/CFT) policy, we cannot accept deposits transferred from a third party, including bank accounts that belong to your family members and friends. By the same token, we cannot accept deposits transferred from a joint name account to a single name account.

Please ensure that the name on the bank account you are sending your deposit from matches the name on your Endowus account. Third party transfers will be rejected, and it may take up to 2 months for the funds to be returned to the remitter’s bank account and will incur a rejection fee of HKD 250.


If you don’t have a Hong Kong bank account or got stuck and need a little help, please contact us at

It will take approximately 3-5 business days for us to process and open your Endowus account. Once it is opened, you will receive an email from us informing you that your Endowus account is ready for investing.
