Connecting China and the World
Connecting China and the World

We expect that China’s capital markets will grow from US$30 trillion today to more than US$100 trillion by 2030 and we believe this will create a once-in-a-generation opportunity for markets in Hong Kong, Asia, and across the world.

This process - ‘The Big Bang of Finance’ - has the potential to significantly increase cross-border capital flows driven by international investors’ continued underinvestment in China’s capital markets; and Mainland China investors’ underinvestment in international assets.

Sitting at the heart of the most international city in China and the most Chinese city outside of the Mainland, HKEX is in a unique position as a facilitator, conduit and superconnector - facilitating the vital two-way flows of capital between China and the world.

Building on our unique China strength, we will continue to bring the China growth story to international investors, and help Chinese capital access global opportunities, by:

  1. Expanding and enhancing our Connect programmes
  2. Becoming China's go-to offshore risk management centre
  3. Solidifying our role as China's preferred offshore fundraising centre
  4. Growing our portfolio of China-related product offerings

Our goal is to be the go-to international market for capturing China-related flows and opportunities.

We are building an ever-more client-centric organisation, and we are committed to enhancing the attractiveness, depth, vibrancy and diversity of our markets, to strengthen our position as a preferred capital raising, risk management and trading venue of choice. We will do this by:

  1. Improving our primary market attractiveness

  3. Expanding our product ecosystem
  4. Growing our client ecosystem


Connecting Today with Tomorrow
Connecting Today with Tomorrow

HKEX is part of a global industry that is rapidly transforming, evolving, and being disrupted by such things as digitisation, big data, personalised finance and ESG considerations.

These megatrends are changing the way our clients and investors behave, redefining the future of capital markets and creating opportunities for us and our partners.

We are excited to be developing a platform business that leverages modern, agile and digitised infrastructure and will allow us to connect today with tomorrow. We are doing this by:

  1. Modernising our infrastructure
  2. Evolving from an infrastructure-led model to a client-led model
  3. Developing digital capabilities
  4. Leveraging our data
