Since its launch in 2014, Stock Connect, the landmark mutual market access programme linking the Hong Kong and Mainland China equity markets, has become the key channel for international investors to access the A-shares market and has helped facilitate the inclusion of Chinese A-shares into key global indices.

Stock Connect trading volumes reached fresh records in the first quarter of 2021, with average daily turnover of Northbound and Southbound trading significantly increased to RMB126.8 billion and $60.8 billion respectively.

HKEX Chief Executive Officer Nicolas Aguzin:

Today’s announcement marks a key step forward in furthering our plans to build an offshore Mainland China equities derivatives suite in Hong Kong. This exciting news further strengthens our long-term partnership with MSCI and reflects our commitment to developing Hong Kong as Asia’s premier derivatives hub, expanding the breadth and depth of our product offering in Hong Kong.

As the global markets leader in the Asian timezone with a unique role connecting China and the world, we believe this new product will act as a key risk management tool for investors in managing their A-share equity exposure.”

 

MSCI Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Henry Fernandez:

“The importance of China in global investment portfolios is growing, evidenced by the country’s market capitalisation weight in the MSCI Emerging Markets Index increasing from 18 per cent in December 2009 to 34 per cent in August 2021. The investment industry is undergoing significant transformation and investments are becoming more complex and diversified, leading to a rise in demand for enhanced trading and risk management solutions. As part of our commitment to empowering global investors to better manage their portfolios, we are very pleased to expand our partnership with HKEX through this new license agreement.”

 

Hong Kong SFC Chief Executive Officer Ashley Alder:

“This A shares index futures contract provides a significant new risk management tool for the growing number of global investors who participate in China’s A shares market, including those trading through Hong Kong’s Stock Connect mechanism. The ability to trade A shares futures in Hong Kong, and to hedge pricing risks effectively, is expected to facilitate the further growth of long term capital flows into the Mainland financial markets.

The new contract is a major milestone in the development of Hong Kong’s capital markets, strengthening its position as a financial risk management and China market access centre of international significance.”
