In our ongoing efforts to cultivate homegrown talent in Hong Kong, we have launched the new HKEX Research Funding Scheme to support local university research projects in the fields of finance, business, biotechnology and ESG.

The scheme will have a dedicated theme each year and for its inaugural year, the theme is "Connecting Today with Tomorrow" - reflecting one of HKEX's three strategic pillars. "Connecting Today with Tomorrow" is all about developing a modern, agile and digitised business platform, allowing HKEX to take advantage of upcoming megatrends such as alternative investments and ESG.
