Shenzhen-Hong Kong Stock Connect is Coming to Town!

14 Oct - Reception of the CITICS Stock Connect Market Seminar at Futian Shangri-la, Shenzhen.

14 Oct - China Resources Beer presented to the mainland investors.

25 Oct - Speakers from HKEX and HK-listed companies shared their investment experience.
Coming towards the end of 2016, one of the most anticipated news for investors might be the launch of Shenzhen-Hong Kong Stock Connect, expected to be running soon. The cross-border share-trading link will open new opportunities for the Hong Kong listed companies to raise mainland funds, a much greater pool of investment. For investor relations, this might be a different trading strategy and investment scope to get used to, and well prepared of.

HKIRA had seized the trend and supported two whole-day seminars in October in Shenzhen and Shanghai respectively. Each event had about 30 Hong Kong listed companies to present and meet with hundreds of mainland investment fund practitioners. The events also invited speakers from HKEX and representatives from Hong Kong listed companies sharing investment experience between A shares and HK stocks under the common market, and arranged workshops on investment strategy in Hong Kong.
