Building the Marketplace of the Future

2022 Corporate Update

 

HKEX is one of the world’s largest and most respected exchange groups, a financial superconnector with China and a trusted capital raising venue of choice with a deep and diverse ecosystem. HKEX is part of a rapidly transforming industry and now is the time to build on our China strength, enhance our market vibrancy, and position for the future.

Our vision is to build the Marketplace of the Future and is supported by three strategic imperatives: Connecting China and the World, Connecting Capital with Opportunities, and Connecting Today with Tomorrow.


Latest 2022 Interim Results.

“Our results for the first half of 2022 reflect the resiliency and robustness of our business, set against a fragile global macro economic backdrop, ongoing geopolitical tensions, market volatility and the continued impact of the pandemic. Though our numbers were down on the record comparable results last year, reflecting this weak overall market sentiment, we have remained resolutely focused on building our business for the long term, investing in new initiatives such as a new SPAC regime, ETF Connect and Swap Connect and market enhancements such as Derivatives Holiday Trading and a new VaR Platform. We have also continued to invest in talent, technology and our customer engagement, all central to our vision to create a Marketplace of the Future. We have a strong business, an exceptional team and a clear long term strategy. We are confident we remain well placed to capture opportunities ahead.”
