Short-term financial products refer to financial products with shorter maturities, usually between a few days and a few months. Short-term financial products are highly recommended in many countries and regions due to their advantages such as low investment risk, strong liquidity and short yield period. However, in Hong Kong, the international financial center, short-term financial products are rarely seen in the context of fierce market competition and competition among major banks and financial institutions for market share. The objective of the study is to find out the reasons behind the absence of short-term financial products in Hong Kong by means of literature review, data analysis, model building and examples. After enumerating some of the main reasons for existing studies, it focuses on analyzing the capital flow in Hong Kong and its impact on economic development, filling in the gaps in previous studies. The results of the study revealed that, SWOT analysis is used to put forward relevant suggestions for the development of short-term financial products in Hong Kong.
