In X v Y [2020] HKCFI 2782, dispute arose from a series of investment structures that were set up between a Taiwanese life insurance company and a bank.  The Hong Kong High Court set aside an order to enforce an arbitration award on the basis (i) that the tribunal’s findings were beyond the scope of the arbitration clause and the parties submission to arbitration, and (ii) that the respondent in the arbitration had not been given a reasonable opportunity to present its case and to meet the case of the claimant in the arbitration.
