The belated yet highly anticipated Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect opened for trade on Monday
The belated yet highly anticipated Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect opened for trade on Monday. The scheme links the two stock exchanges, enabling billions of dollars' worth of share trades between the mainland and city state. Previously international investors have been restricted in terms of their ability to buy A-share listed companies, those companies listed on the Shanghai stock exchange in China, which have previously only been available to domestic investors. The opening of the Shanghai-Hong Kong stock connect now allows investors who use the Hong Kong stock exchange (H-shares) as a vehicle to invest in the Chinese market, opening up a pool of equities listed in Shanghai. Previously Macquarie Bank, AMP Capital and Platinum were the only main companies that had the qualified foreign investor license in Australia. This new system opens up the opportunity to the other fund managers and investors that participate in the region to go in and buy directly into the Shanghai market. Watch full video here; (VIEW LINK)
