SHENZHEN-HONG KONG STOCK CONNECT GOES LIVE
The Shenzhen-Hong Kong Stock Connect scheme was launched on December 5.
The platform enables Hong Kong and overseas institutional and individual investors to directly trade eligible A-shares listed in the Shenzhen Stock Exchange, and qualified Mainland investors to trade eligible shares listed in the Hong Kong bourse.
The new platform is expected to attract investors looking at opportunities in the Mainland, and further strengthen Hong Kong’s position as an international financial centre and global offshore Renminbi business hub. It follows the launch of the Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect in November 2014.
Both schemes exemplify the combined advantages of Hong Kong under "One Country, Two Systems" and the city’s position as China’s international financial centre.
