Located at the heart of Asia, Hong Kong is fully plugged into the round-the-clock global financial trading cycle, providing sure and seamless connectivity with major financial hubs in Europe and North America as well as the Middle East and across Asia, including Mainland China.

A world-leading global banking and financial hub on the doorstep of Mainland China, Hong Kong is the world’s largest offshore Renminbi business center. Initiatives include Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect, Shenzhen-Hong Kong Stock Connect and Bond Connect schemes that further promote capital market access and the internationalization of the Renminbi.
