- Financial services group Octagonal said subsidiary Global Investment Strategy UK had received approval 'in principle' from Hong Kong regulators to carry out activities such as securities dealing.

The company said it would look to commence operations as soon as practically possible following formal approval, which remained subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions.

Directors would travel to Hong Kong later this month to further progress the business plan, Octagonal said.
