HKEX CEO Nicolas Aguzin: “HKEX has made significant progress this year, despite a challenging macro backdrop. Our derivatives market has performed strongly and is now taking centre stage as HKEX’s market diversification efforts pay off, supporting the strong financial performance of the Group as reflected by the robust reported results during 2023. Our new overseas offices in New York and London, as well as our engagement programme in the Middle East and Southeast Asia, underscore our commitment in delivering on our international strategy. Over the past year, we have launched more Connect-related initiatives and enhancements than in any of the previous eight years, strengthening Hong Kong’s role as the superconnector between China and the world. The introduction of new listing rules for specialist technology companies and the FINI platform are major milestones that will shape the future of capital markets in the region and beyond.  On behalf of HKEX, I would like to thank our customers, business partners, regulators and our community in Hong Kong, Mainland China and around the world for their strong support throughout the past year. The business is excited by what lies ahead, which includes consultation conclusions on severe weather trading, the launch of China Treasury Bond Futures and the implementation of block trading under Stock Connect. We have no doubt that 2024 will be another year of great possibility and connectivity.”

 

 

Hong Kong Exchange 2023 Review: 64 IPOs Raising $5.23 Billion Capital with Average $81.7 Million Per IPO

Hong Kong Exchange New York Office

20th December 2023 – Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Limited (HKEX) has had a very busy and productive 2023, marked by the achievement of several significant milestones and the launch of new initiatives. This included the opening of new offices in New York and London, strategically positioning the business across all major global time zones to be closer to its clients. The focus on derivatives, fixed-income and currency products has also been instrumental in further diversifying HKEX’s business and product ecosystem, giving investors and risk managers even greater choice.  Throughout the year, HKEX introduced a range of notable new projects and initiatives, further enhancing the Group’s offering and reinforcing Hong Kong’s role as a leading international financial centre.

  • Despite the continued complexity of the macroeconomic landscape, Hong Kong’s financial markets have continued to demonstrate resilience and strength, reinforcing its relevance and role as a vital global superconnector. This year, HKEX signed MOUs with the Beijing Stock Exchange, the Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX) and the Saudi Tadawul Group, to explore dual-listing opportunities and joint product development, capitalising on deeper business ties with Mainland China, Southeast Asia and the Middle East. Both IDX and the Saudi Exchange have then been added to the list of Recognised Stock Exchanges, allowing for potential secondary listings on HKEX.
  • HKEX’s derivatives market had a strong year with average daily volume of 1.4 million contracts as at 30 November, up 4 per cent from a year earlier. Notably, HKEX’s MSCI futures and options products saw open interest exceed 100,000 contracts for the first time in November, with nominal value of US$4.2 billion. Meanwhile, key products such as Hang Seng Index Futures Options, Hang Seng TECH Index Futures, and USD/CNH Futures set daily trading records during the year.
  • The Exchange Traded Products (ETPs) market, including ETFs and L&I Products, has also gone from strength-to-strength with average daily turnover reaching $14 billion as at the end of November, an increase of around 20 per cent from a year earlier. During the year, HKEX welcomed Asia Pacific’s first Saudi Arabian ETF, part of the 16 new ETFs introduced in 2023, bringing the total to 179.
  • HKEX’s Connect franchise has seen ongoing enhancements, including: the addition of up to 10 trading days, the inclusion of 1,000 more stocks for Northbound Connect, and the inclusion of international companies for Southbound Connect. Additionally, Swap Connect and the HKD-RMB Dual Counter programme were introduced to strengthen Hong Kong’s position as a leading offshore RMB hub. The upcoming introduction of China Treasury bond futures, and the A50 options, will further solidify Hong Kong’s status as an international RMB trading centre.
  • For 2023, the global IPO market continued to be impacted by soft market sentiment and the broader macroeconomic backdrop. Whilst this impacted Hong Kong’s markets, there was continued momentum in listings during the year. In 2023, HKEX welcomed 64 new listings, raising $40.9 billion as of 15 December*. Throughout the year, HKEX remained committed to further enhancing its attractiveness and competitiveness as a listing venue of choice, and to this end, launched a consultation paper on severe weather trading, concluded discussions on GEM reform and introduced a new chapter for specialist technology companies. These reflected the Group’s commitment to fostering a robust and dynamic marketplace.
  • In addition to new reforms and listing rules, HKEX introduced several operational enhancements, such as the launch of the FINI and Synapse platforms, providing greater convenience and transparency for market participants. The FINI platform reduces the time between the pricing of an IPO and the trading of shares from at least five business days to two business days, while the Synapse platform supports institutional investors participating in Northbound Stock Connect to better manage their post-trade operations across different time zones.
  • HKEX is fully committed to ESG governance, disclosure and investment opportunities. In November, HKEX reaffirmed its commitment to this cause by pledging to achieve Group carbon neutrality by 2024 and net zero by 2040, a decade earlier than previously planned. As a regulator, HKEX published a consultation paper on climate disclosure enhancements to facilitate listed companies in transitioning to full adoption of standards from the International Sustainability Standards Board. HKEX’s voluntary carbon market platform, Core Climate, has also gained momentum with registered participants tripling over the past year to around 80 members. To further promote green development in the region, HKEX signed an MOU with the China Emissions Exchange Shenzhen and the China Beijing Green Exchange to jointly explore opportunities in cross-border carbon market connectivity and climate finance. These actions demonstrate the Group’s objective to address climate change promptly.
  • As a purpose-driven organisation with a unique role in connecting markets and the wider community, HKEX partnered with the FII Institute and the HKSAR Government to bring the FII PRIORITY summit to Asia for the first time in December. The summit featured over 100 exceptional speakers drawn from industry, government and academia; it attracted roughly 1,000 attendees from around the world. This well-received event demonstrated HKEX’s ongoing commitment to global connectivity and strengthening ties with Middle East investors and markets.
  • The London Metal Exchange (LME) also had a good year, with volumes trending upwards over the last few months. In November, the average daily volume reached its highest level since May 2021 and open interest was up 17 per cent year-on-year. The positive outcome of a judicial review related to events in the nickel market in March 2022 demonstrated the integrity of the LME team, which has consistently prioritised the interests of the market as a whole.

Here is a look back at some of the year’s highlights:
