ORSO (Occupational Retirement Scheme Ordinance)

An ORSO pension is a Hong Kong based company pension scheme that is established by an employer for its employee(s). It is registered with and regulated by the Mandatory Provident Fund Schemes Authority (MPFA) in Hong Kong.

It is possible to build a scheme from just 1 employee upwards and we work with a range of trustees to design, build and manage a scheme that is appropriate for the both the business and employees needs.

Having an ORSO scheme can often attract staff and can work as a retention benefit.

For owner managed companies there can also be some sensible and significant benefits.
