Stock-Connect Investors Connect

Themed "Trenching HK Stock-Connect", the 2-day event served the purpose of strengthening the understanding of HK ListCos by Mainland brokers.

Representatives from around 80 HK ListCos networked with investors and analysts in Shanghai.

In the aim to build a better interconnected environment, HKIRA has organized “Stock Connect Onshore Corporate Access Day” for the second time this year on June 15 to 16 in Shanghai, bringing around 80 Hong Kong eligible stocks under Stock Connect to network with over 200 leading mainland brokers.

The two-day event was organized jointly with HKICS, CHKLC, HKCEA LCC and New Fortune, and was fully supported by HKEX and SHETO of HKSAR Government. We hosted this event to encourage the research coverage of Mainland sell-sides, to enhance the awareness of Hong Kong listed company in Mainland for increasing the trading volume, and to promote the culture of onshore investor relations initiatives.
