Hang Seng Indexes to launch Stock Connect Hong Kong Index Series

RELATED TOPICS​

Hang Seng Indexes is to launch the Hang Seng Stock Connect Hong Kong Index Series on 5 December 2016.

Vincent Kwan, director and general manager of Hang Seng Indexes, says: “We have developed the Stock Connect Hong Kong Index Series in response to market demand. The indexes’ constituent universe covers equities eligible for trading via the southbound trading link of the Stock Connect Scheme, with additional liquidity screening to make it a more investable reference set for mainland China investors. We plan to compile more indexes to meet the growing demand arising from the development of mutual market access between mainland China and Hong Kong.”
 
The Stock Connect Hong Kong Index Series includes three indexes: Hang Seng Stock Connect Hong Kong Index (HSHKI); Hang Seng Stock Connect Hong Kong MidCap & SmallCap Index (HSHKMS); and Hang Seng Stock Connect Hong Kong SmallCap Index (HSHKS).
 
The HSHKI provides a benchmark for the performance of equities listed in Hong Kong that are eligible for trading via the southbound trading link of the Stock Connect Scheme, while the HSHKMS and HSHKS reflect the performance of the MidCap & SmallCap and the SmallCap segments of the HSHKI respectively.
 
The indexes are provided to the market for benchmarking and product development purposes.
 
All three indexes will be calculated and disseminated real-time at two-second intervals, beginning on 5 December 2016.
