Taylor regularly advises clients on setting up fund management businesses in Hong Kong, and offshore hedge fund start-ups, particularly with managers of mainland Chinese background.  He also advises foreign fund managers on mainland Chinese QFII and QDII matters, regulatory issues and setting up offices in mainland China.

Taylor is known for his pioneering spirit and has advised on many innovative products including the first of many RQFII funds, the first RQFII ETF and the first RMB bond fund.
